Is it safe to assume that they are SAE 3/8" and 7/16"???  Interesting with the S A E marking.

In the U.S., during the transition from U.S.S. standard to S.A.E. standard,  having the S.A.E. mark (Society of Automotive Engineers) was a clue what type of bolt / nut the wrench was designed to fit.  U.S.S. size designations   were based on shank diameter of the bolt;  S.A.E. size designation on the width of the bolt head / nut.
