Yesteryear Box Type – H (Woodgrain)

In 1974 Yesteryears were re-added to the Matchbox range after a 2 year absence.
They were now issued in what is commonly referred to as a ‘woodgrain’ box, this box came in many colours like Red, Blue or Orange. There are two distinct types in this style, designated as Box Type ”Hw” or like the one shown above ”Hg”.
The difference between them is in the colour used for the “Y” number on the top of the box, it was either white (Hw) or gold (Hg) the remainder of the text was always printed in white
