Crown, I believe, is generally considered a good brand and I think are only HSS. Check the link provided above. Normally a set like that would go for $150 - $200 a set. So you got a good deal. Now buy a good grinder with the money saved if you don't already have one.

Crown makes good chisels, good buy.
From the top:
skew chisel
parting tool
spindle gouge
round nose scraper
pointed scraper.
