Austin

I found these two wrenches this weekend.  Any Idea if they are Automotive? Austin looks like same script as Austin Healey to me.

Has the small end of the smaller one been altered? More square like a tool post wrench than the other openings.

Austin before Healey...

You appear to have 2 of the 4 spanners from the tool kit

Mine also could be for sale or trade.  Not really sure what they are worth.  PM me if you have something to offer.

I went on the Vintage tool Co site and they have a full set for sale for 35 pounds (around $50?), but the Austin logo is upside down when I compare it to mine.  Would this just be a different vintage?

I like the script, looks like someone cared and took pride in what they were doing, I have nothing to trade that anyone would be interested in and I dont know their value. I guess I better stick with what I know and not stray
