Are there empty peg holes?

Yes, my board didn't have any pegs/lags with it.  The holes are lag threaded from past use so i know it had lag L's or some type lag hook.  All the wrenches were held by 2 of these at the head.  I've figured out which board i have in relation to the wrench display layout BUT not a firm year yet.   As u know the year will help me determine the logo head stamping. I'm gonna be posting moreabout this later with illustrations of 2 90" boards BUT with different wrenches on it.
Hmmmmmm.......

Update,
I've determined that the board i bought displays wrenches in this way. The only illustrations i found for this 90" board date 1918,1921 and 1923. 
Does anyone have this illustration 1924 or later showing the the "Underline Scroll" logo?  Double clik to enlarge.





This is a ad from 1927 showing a 90" board , but a different wrench display layout. These wrenches will have the NEAT post 1924 "Underline Scroll" logo. Note underline logo in the ad!


Both ads are touting the Superior line. thanks 4 any help.

I acquired a later model Williams wrench board with holes but no hooks.
I found a National brand "Square Bend" hook that screwed in perfectly.
Found at Menards.
You might pick up a couple of different sizes and try them in the holes.

I sent the wrench out this morning - and dontcha know,  I was collecting stuff for sale out of the last lot of tools and came across this...

7/16 x 1/2 - embossed with "T" on reverse.  Not rusty but the jaws have some marring from slipping off bolt heads/nuts.
Let me know if you want this also, and I'll get it to you.

OK. Will do.  Swap meet season starts early in May.  Rust & Relics at the Curtiss Museum.  NY Steam Engine Ass'n on Memorial Day.  And our motorcycle club swap meet mid May, sometimes tools show up there ( I try to encourage that).
