Dunlop 9 inch tyre levers as supplied in many English car tool kits.

This lot are unusual in that they have the T.L.11 marking in addition to the typical post war "Dunlop, Made in England"

Information wanted - response from P Pope: "I have seen many of these levers but have never seen TL11 on any of them. However, Dunlop 7" spoon (motorcycle) levers often have TL13 or TL273 stamps, so TL is a Dunlop mark rather than someone elses".
