Only two of these open end wrenches have a brand name that I can find, one is Fairmont the other is Billings. The other three may have a name, but if so I can't find it. One has quite a bit of rust, almost all have patina. I purchased them at an estate sale at an old farm. They were stacked in a coffee can along with several other types of wrenches that I will be listing also.

I don't know the date of manufacture. I did research the two companies and the best I could figure is the Fairmont wrench should be from the 1930s. I couldn't pinpoint a date on the Billings wrench. All five wrenches appear to be about the same age.

I also could not see a size stamped on four of the five wrenches so I measured the openings. I'm fairly confident in the sizes I determined each wrench to be, but I won't promise I got them all correctly.

In the order they appear in my photo, from front to back:
Unknown maker 3/8ths and 7/16ths
Unknown maker 11/16ths
Unknown maker 9/16ths and 5/8ths
Fairmont Cleve. 11/16ths and 3/4
Billings 9/16ths and 3/4

Delivery will be via USPS Small Flat Rate Parcel from Nevada. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $7.95.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT POSSIBLE PARTIAL REFUND OF SHIPPING CHARGES:
Every January the postal service increases shipping charges. Previously, shipping charges were based solely on weight and zip code. This year the postal service went a bit overboard. Now, with this year's increase, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. This latest increase has added an additional .96 cents to up to $2.83 on packages, depending on their destination. I try to absorb some of the new charges and haven't increased my shipping charges in several years, but that's getting harder with each increase.

To complicate things even further, Google will not promote or show items for sale unless they have a designated cost, or unless the seller uses calculated shipping. My web host is not equipped to figure calculated shipping, so I have to quote a shipping charge using the east coast as the final destination and then refund over payments. When I return the overage, I usually do so by including cash inside the package when it's shipped. My feedback page will show verification that I do return overpayments.

COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box. However, my web host does not have the ability to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with any of that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.

INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES
Due to claims that merchandise is not being received at various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer be able to process international orders unless payment is made with U.S. currency, including conversion fees. Orders will be processed after funds have cleared a U.S. bank. PAYPAL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.

All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
