It seems like these are very close looking to Stewart hooks and nuts. I need like 4 if they are, but the nuts look a little too curvy and the hooks look a little too sharply hooked. Can someone tell me what these are from? The shoes don't look like the shoes on my Universal Favorite or Thoroughbred.

They don't look anything like the parts on my SS Stewart Ladies banjo. My shoes come to more of a point at the end and the nuts are not round on the end. They are a hex shape on both ends with the open end being slightly rounded.

Examples of SSS nuts-- mid early to mid 1880, late 1880 to early 1890s, mid to late 1890s on.

The later 90s nuts were rounder on the bottom then the earlier nuts.

This is a very tiny sampling and exceptions exist. His very early hardware was bought from J. B. Schall.

So it looks like my conclusion is correct that those in the ebay ad are not Stewart

It does not look like they are to me.
