Cleaning up in the shop and came across this wrench. No numbers just a semi colon and the letter M. It's a 9/16" and 5/8" and under 6"overall length. Fordson or Model A maybe?

I'm thinking its a Manzel supplied tool for a Ford 9n or 2n tractor

The USA is also a clue.

That did not appear until around 1925 on Ford wrenches and was continued until around 1941, according to one person I talked with recently.

The Moore Forging Company, in Massachusetts, made a lot of those wrenches for Ford and every other company.

The M was normally in a circle or a diamond on their wrenches.

They also made the first Craftsman wrenches for Sears and Roebucks, about 1938.

A good catalog of all their products does evidently not exist.

I would love to see one!

I got rid of 19 these non-Model T wrenches a while back on eBay.

I can't remember if they were the longer/larger or shorter/smaller wrench.

Note the variations.
