    In 1974 for the first time all the figures had matching boxes. At this point the entire line was called "Best of the West". The term had been used loosely on some of paperwork with the figures but just on some of the paperwork.
    The instruction manuals had bit more information about western history and such. The figures and accessories stayed the same.
    In the last photo are all 14 of the human figures. The horses and wagons also had matching artwork.
