The wrench is in good condition. It does have visible signs of wear. There is some pitting on the sides of the metal. There are no cracks in the metal. There are no breaks, or missing pieces as far as I can tell. The wood handle has a couple small cracks on one side. It has been cleaned with water. However, it has not been scrubbed in order to protect and preserve the antique patina developing on the wrench. There is a slight bit of surface rust like dust around the adjustable neck area especially. The wrench has some white smudges in one little area toward the inner bottom of the handle and on the head and neck area. The wrench does work. However, it might be good to give it some grease or oil if it is going to be put to work in the field.
The handle has the larger single pin instead of the smaller dual pin handles. Also, the handle has a wee bit of movement to it if it is worked with. In other words, you can make it seem loose if you try and move it. Interestingly, this same sort of wrench is similar to a Robinson design. But, this wrench has at least three of the original stamped letters still on the side of the head - "ELA". It is possible that an "H" follows the "ELA".
The decorative possibilities for this wrench are many. The larger size makes it more noticeable and possibly more desirable for a wall mounted man cave or steampunk decoration. The collector will appreciate this wrench for its condition and size.
The wrench weighs 72.0 oz.
The wrench measures approximately 15" long.
The head is 3.5" wide.
The wrench has not been "touched-up".
It is authentic.
The wrench has not been sanded or painted.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. The actual laying down or standing up of an item may appear to change that size a little bit. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that we do not enhance all of our pictures. Sometimes the first picture is enhanced for lighting purposes, etc. Therefore, the other pictures should be in very close agreement with the color.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of manufacturing or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront. If you see a questionable mark that is not in the description of an item you are interested in please contact me.
***Please note that since we offer free shipping in the United States, the actual first Shipping costs incurred due to the transaction from the seller to the buyer will be deducted from any returned and/or refundable purchases with the exception of missing items, damages from shipping, listing, and/or condition errors, along with full compliance of Etsy return and refund standards. We are dedicated to our customers and always strive for your satisfaction.
