VINTAGE WWII US NAVY TAP AND DIE FROM CREENFIELD - BOLT SET

Today it's a cool Tap and Die Set from Greenfield for the US Navy in WWII
I've got a mix-match box of taps and dies that I've collected in the past, but never a nice kit like this one.
As you can see it's a U.S. Navy Bolt Set No. 0.  Greenfield is still in business today and still makes Taps and Dies.
The "0" would mean the smaller size which is more of what I need.  
I'll add a coat of oil to them so they'll last another 70 years.
Comes with everything you'd need to make some threads...
I like the box has cut outs for everything...
These are really handy if you ever strip out thread or need to add a screw to a piece of metal.
The old Hardware.
The bottom of the box is held together with these for added strength.  I love old tools... They're Vintage Gear for Guys!
