I've Googled all over the place.  Sears doesn't show these.  Neither does 
Cooper Tools (who owns Crescent).  Apparently some sort of Shanghai Specials 
that Crescent put their name on, but in this case (so far) they're worthy of 
the name.

These are really stainless.  Not polished, not chromed, just a brushed 
finish.  No reverse button - in fact, they apparently snap together and then 
good luck in ever getting them apart for service.

Because they don't reverse, you flip them over to reverse direction.  And to 
facilitate figuring out which way it goes, the box end is offset so one side 
of the outer circle is tangent with the side of the shank of the wrench.

Oh well, looks like these are "unobtanium".

Any others that have relatively thin rims, to get onto nuts close to 
vertical surfaces !
