Has any one ever seen anything like this, I aploigize for the pictures, I suck at photography. I figure it dates from the 40’s or 50’s, it was in the house when I bought it, the previous owner was something of a wood worker. What do you supose it would be worth? There are 40 different samples but no red birch, this makes me think it can’t be earlier than the 40’s when it was reported extinct in Canada.

I’ve seen these wood sample kits available on the internet, so it’s nothing rare. Yours is obviously kind of old, but I would doubt it is worth anything to speak of.

Looks exactly like a sample kit a coworker bought, about 20 years(!) ago. I remember the typewriter page list.

It’s a great set to have when you have customers to show what certain wood look like.
