While on the subject of "V" marks on Craftsman tools, I got to looking at all my Craftsman wrenches. I have quite a variety stamped with the "V", but this one jumped out at me. It has a "V", but not in the normal area that others have shown. Here is what I found

OK, thanks. That's the only "V" on the wrench.

I'm no expert, but I think it's just a really old wrench that may have been produced before the =V= manufacturer's mark was stamped on the more traditionally expected place in the raised panel portion of the wrench.

I didn't know he dropped the price $25. The last time I looked it was $100. I might buy one after tax time.
