There are 2 sets:
1) 52 pcs: Hardwood: Whitney Brothers: heavy/dense, lighter colored, all the fancy shapes
2) 38 pcs: Softwood: not dense, darker colored, simple, small shapes

I actually played with these at least in 1956 (see actual 1957 pic) (born 1952).

Many are in excellent shape, however some have been painted gray, and the softwoods could use refinishing.

The Hardwood blocks are still made by Whitney Brothers and sold as "Intermediate Block Set" on eBay. The 118 pc set is over $370.
