I picked these up in a 'bay lot purchase. I bought the entire lot for one tool.i got these three smalls and other items as a bonus. A five inch Diamond No. 11.  A six inch Boos Tool Corp. wrench. The third item is a five inch adjustable monkey wrench marked Pat Apd. For.  No date, name or any other engraving or stamps.

The top one is a bicycle wrench I am thinking.   Have seen a very few of the middle one, and never seen the monkey wrench type at the bottom..    Papaw may have one.

The bottom wrench is an Ellrich Superior Bicycle Wrench, Patented January 6, 1891 Patent D20,448

Nice little wrench that you don't see come up for sale very often, it is a keeper in my book.

If you are looking to re-home I could be available for adoption.

Neat!  Thank you for the ID.  I'll hang on to it for now, but you have first dibs if I change my mind.  :smiley:

good find Yadda,  I have the top 2, but not the  Ellrich,  it is a very good catch, it is so different that they received the patent
in only 1 1/2 months after giving the application.

It is a design patent not a standard patent, that being said I don't know the details of what distinguishes that. I guess the design patent protects the way an item looks not the way an item functions. Maybe it is easier and faster to obtain a design patent.

Nice score there Yadda.
A person who could really read human minds would be privileged to gaze on some correct imitations of chaos.
