Its the model "L"  Silent Salesman wrench display board. Ad indicates 5 sizes of various design, 6 assortments of wrenches.  I know of 2 other size "wrench" display boards,  anyone know of any more than a total of 3?

When you determine exactly what style you are looking for, let us know, (with pictures).
Might be able to chip in some help.

The W-Diamond logo was first used in 1884. The trademark was issued in 1915.  According to AA.

I'm trying to sort it out, i got the board and had the ad for it listing what wrenches were on it.  If you look at the ad with the guy picking 1 out .... there 6 wrenches deep for each profile seen. When a jobber bought that board display it included 246 wrenches and weighed 174 lbs.  thanks 4 the offer of help.

edit, i made a mistake here, the retail kit of the board included 6 of each size wrench. only 1was displayed on the board.

Williams logo changed a few times over the early years.
What era are you looking for?
AA has some info regarding the various logos.

I grabbed these out of the spare wrench box but I see you just want DOE wrenches.  The DOE is 7/8" x 1" ,  stamped 733, embossed with a "T". and has the logo you're looking for.

my board seems 2 have the same diameter lags for all holes.  whats ur smallest diameter.

in my research so far i found my 90" board kit could be purchased in at least 2 different part numbers with different wrenches being displayed.  this is a conundrum!

Are there empty peg holes?
