Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!
I spent last week helping my father declutter a 60-year 'stash of stuff' he had accumulated in his shop. I brought home some tools I used as a kid, and a couple I never knew were in the shop (they were 'hidden' behind piles of other stuff). One of the new-to-me items is a socket set from Frank Mossberg. The set is marked #60. I can find only one online reference, a 1922 trade journal that lists the set for $13.50.
Can anyone provide any further info? I think my Grandfather may have used this tool set to maintain his Model T, so am not interested in selling but if the set is truly Model T-era would display it with Popeye. Photos:
Think about it, if only those tools could talk, what a interesting lifetime story would unfold.
T era, for sure !
