I have nothing to do with this was just interested in the Simms wrench so if someone buys it and has no use for the Simms wrench let me know.

Add doesn't say much. Which one is the "Simms" wrench?
The two lower ones (in his one and only picture that came up) both look interesting. The top one looks so very much like a wrench that was given out in the cable TV industry back in the '90s. My dad had a bag of several hundred of those when he died (2003). Most of them I think went with the scrap metal, but I still have several of them. The cable TV ones were made of aluminum and fit 7/16 fittings. Didn't see anything in the listing that said what size that one fit.

Yes.

An aftermarket Model T coil box key and two ignition wrenches.

One is a T with the pin and the boxed end, one fits the switch, the square hole wrench fits the Prestolight tank fitting and the hex end is for the points.
The other two look like a ignition / points wrench for a Model A Ford the brass shim is a filler gauge to set the gap and it should have a small flat blade screwdriver on the reverse side.
Hard to find items.
