Default Blacksmith-Era Tool Rack?

Don’t know where to put this...
This may be my best antique possession because I don’t think they survived. It’s a tool board of some sort. I think it came from a late 1800s hardware store. What do you think?
I don’t think it was homemade. There are two screws where the advertising went?
It’s 35” x 51”. The cool hooks are all cast iron. Great patina on the wood.
If you look closer you can see imprints or “shadows” of what I think are wrench ends. I’ve tried placing every old tool I have on it but only wrenches really seem to fit. And not curved wrenches...
I’d like to load it with the correct wrenches, if possible.

Neat. Nice find. Good luck with finding correct wrenches. Been wanting a set for years, but no luck here.

Nice! … sure would look great with the wrenches hanging. Post your pix at Papaws Tool Talk papawswrench.com
Someone there might recognize your board and which wrenches go with it

Thanks! I posted at Papaws.
I don’t think they appreciate newbies very much. No replies, yet.
Registration was harder than getting on my SS site. Darn hackers make life miserable for everyone.

I saw you on Papaws. Guys are looking but no answer as yet. Hope something comes up, I have faith in the guys over there... lots of "wrench" knowledge.

With 23” “railroad wrench”. Fits fairly well.
