Information about Coes'-pattern Wrench

Illustration from Stelinger catalog (1895), p. 50, where it is observed that "The Coes' Knife-handle Wrench is the most popular high-grade wrench made, and while there are a dozen or more good makes of wrenches, we believe there are more "Coes" sold than of all the others combined." The 6" wrench cost 50 cents in 1895 for the polished versions (45 cents for the black).
