Craftsman Sockets

The Craftsman C series seems to have also been sold by the Western Auto store chain as their Westcraft (marked with an "N") series.

These two 5/8 sockets are an exact match in every way including weight at a perfect 1 oz each

In a somewhat fitting move, the chain was later purchased by Sears

From Wikapedia:

Western Auto Supply Company—known more widely as Western Auto—was a specialty retail chain of stores that supplied automobile parts and accessories. It operated approximately 1200 stores across the United States.[1] It was started in 1909 in Kansas City, Missouri, by George Pepperdine, who later founded Pepperdine University.[2]

Western Auto was bought by Beneficial Corporation in 1961; Western Auto's management led a leveraged buyout in 1985, leading three years later to a sale to Sears. Sears sold most of the company to Advance Auto Parts in 1998, and by 2003, the resulting merger had led to the end of the Western Auto brand and its product distribution network.
