Your profile says you’re in NH
Your area (or a short drive therefrom) has to be a hotbed for such things.

Now that it’s spring, start checking out flea markets, garage sales, antique shops, etc. (also CL, as papadan points out)
eB*y makes sense only if you don’t have what you want in your area, but hands-on shopping beats online.

Also check out your local tool collector’s club/association for both tools and leads.

Cooper’s tools are the only hand tools available at the flea market where I live! This is wine country, has been for centuries and more (since Roman times or earlier), and they still make handmade barrels around here. I know this doesn’t help but I had to reply because your question made me laugh, my question being, where nearby can I get good old hand tools that are not cooper’s tools.
