I am unsure as to whether you check your comments, but I too have that interchangeable set by Boye. It does not, however, have the 1933 fair insignia in the top, but all the other details: the green velvet and the black elastic and golden box color. It was given to me by a customer, whose hair I used to style. It is missing two hooks, though. I always wondered how old is was, as it was given to her when she was very young. I am excited to learn that it is bone, as I figured it was. My granny used to crochet/knit/tat and always tried to teach me, but I was never any good. She has passed on now, and I certainly wished I were more patient when I was younger! thanks for your informative site.
