My newest and rare finds
« on: July 07, 2013, 08:43:22 PM »
Finally got these in. Been waiting awhile. The DENNETT is so rare there is only a drawing of it in Rathbones wrench book. The ELIAS SILO is said to be ultra rare.

It is fun. These were part of a lot bought in New York at auction. It took a while (3 1/2 months) to arrive but they made it. Going to look a entire collection of a few hundred pcs tonight. Wish we luck.

Ive picked thru the collection for sale once. Took some of the better ones. Since then he has bought several more and some hard to find ones I dont have. Im going to guess the collection at 200 -250 wrenchs. Wants $250 for all. NOW...... add in the little bonus that included in that sale is a "Rein Rounder" used buy  blacksmiths and saddle makers to round reins in the old days. I believe that be a $125 piece alone.
