    My dad FISHYPETE always told me when I go to a swap meet or antique shop that I should always look through the “junk” or boring stuff like jewelry or non car related stuff in the display cases or boxes....well today paid off big time...look at this rare gem...unbelievable!! The place had lots of stuff and it would have been very easy to overlook this. The lady at the shop said it was just a “cute little bug with a helmet”........BTW....it’s a 1968 Dodge Scat Pack tie clasp/clip...

                        Well worth your time. I always ignore the junk boxes or the junk wagon at auctions.

                              Yup, I found these in a junk tool box at a yard sale. All SnapOn.

                              wrench.jpg

                              I looked up the numbers and there is over 900 bucks worth of wrench sets right there through SnapOn.

                              I bought the whole box with a multitude of other tools for 50 bucks.

                                            It's got to be rare as hens teeth. It was a dealer promo from 68 to 71 from what I found.

                                            There can't be many of them.
