Spotted for sale on the US version of eBay, this near-complete Linotype wrench set.

Here's a link to the listing: Wrench set by Linotype

Here's what the seller had to say:

QuoteWrenches-Offered is a 6 piece open wrench set in original canvas tool holder marked Linotype.  Wrenches range in size from 1 1/16 to 1/4".  Holder has 7 pouches so may be one missing wrench?  Four wrenches have V markings, V-21, V724, V731A & V34 with a diamond shaped logo with a W inside, two are marked Special. The other two are marked Billings Spencer 27C & Armstrong 24-A.  Wrenches are clean & well marked, holder is sound with some soiling with strap.  Assume these were for a Linotype printing press?

What mine looks like after 70 odd years in use. It has grown a bit
