Wood blocks and tokens of numbers and horses from the Frisko game of the 1930 and 40s. Great size, condition, numbers and designs!

There are 24 numbered blocks, a bit over 1 1/4" square and a full 1/2" thick. The numbers are raised and painted, and the background, and the back of the blocks, are a textured criss-cross design. Then there are 8 blocks, double sided, 4 with HIGH on one side, LOW on the other side; and 4 with EVEN, ODD on the block. The painted colors of the blocks are red, green, gold, and silver. The paint is in very good condition, and the raised numbers and letters have a few chips and still look great.
Now, the tokens. There are 77 of the double sided, round, wood tokens with the word "FRISKO" on one side, and a darling rocking horse on the other side. These are 15/16" in diameter. There is one, large token, 1 5/16" in diameter, and it has the rocking horse on one side with the words "Our Hobby Toys and Games" (there is a star between "Hobby" and "Toys"). The other side reads "The Embossing Company Albany, NY" around the edge, and in the middle it reads "FOR LUCK KNOCK ON WOOD". You can see this large token in the 4th and 5th photos- between the gold 1 and gold 2 number blocks.
A great game set of all wood blocks and tokens. The wood has aged to a warm, almost primitive looking, rich brown.

The box is very usable and the lid has tears and wear. Inside the lid are the instructions for the Frisko game, and at the bottom it states: "No. 701 another game by The Embossing Company of Albany, NY, USA, Copyright 1937". All game pieces fit neatly in the bottom of the box with special spacers so all blocks fit squarely side by side.

Nice game set for play, or use for new purposes and projects. Please note the ship rate is East to West coast, so please provide your zip for your ship rate.
