Good/VG antique condition with minor -to- moderate overall wear (small dings, dents, scuffs, scratches, stains, etc.) from normal use over the years but NO breaks or repairs. Fully functional tool. Quick adjust function works great - slides smooth and firmly locks into each of its (24) separate positions along its 1-1/2" jaw range. Lightly cleaned using wire-wheel, so virtually zero rust but revealed minor pitting throughout. All-in-all, a fantastic example of a very hard to find nut wrench!! See pics.

Measures 8-1/8" long. Jaws are 3/4" deep/wide and open 1-1/2" max (adjusts in 1/16" increments - which equals 24 positions over 1-1/2"). Weighs 1 lb. 8.4 oz..
