I've had this for a number of decades, and even have used it on occasion.

If you’re interested, here is the DATAMP information. They made several different lengths over the years. I had an 18 inch version, so I know they were made at least that large and I still have a 6 inch one with the wood handle. Nice wrenches.

Thanks much for the link Mike, it seems the patent holder lived in the next town that I grew up in. I'm new here and reviewed what I posted and had to laugh at how I worded it. I thought for sure the question would be asked "are you referring to the wrench or the dollar".

That is very nicely gizmotic.

And, as to the dollar, if you've been holding onto that dollar for years, well, then you qualify as the singer in the song, "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out:" (one of my favorite covers; Josh White's daughter is performing with him, and her singing is terrific) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwitYMcldQ0 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwitYMcldQ0)

Nice wrench. Reminds me of the (Lake) Superior Wrenches, produced not very far from where I live:
