Default Old Bonney wrench help

I found this wrench in a box of tools a couple weeks ago and found that this was in an 'economy' line from Bonney. Is this information correct? Has any found a full set or know what years they were made? I haven't had any luck finding combos to match, only double open end wrenches.

They were made in KOREA. I saw sets of them may be 20 years old here in ARABIA.

I have a set of combos I bought off of CL for 20.00. http://www.garagejournal.com/forum/s...d.php?t=109690
IIRC Alloy Artifacts has a nice little write up on these.

First off these werent made in Korea. The USA stamping is kind of a give away. These were the economy line of the Bonney tool company. For a few years the open end of the wrench wasnt rounded but instead had a V shaped gullet. The V shaped gullet wrenches are collectable as it is believed to give better traction. I have a set of these that I used in my construction company for 4o years.
