They've got stuff from two different machines.

The polisher box and Handi-Butler box are light green [faded out] with red circles, which identify them as being from the 560 or 561, and the attachment box is light tan with red circles, from the 517,18,19.

They are not from the 513 - those boxes (as were the 509,10,11,12) were solid dark maroon with a single large old-style "cursive" logo. Earlier machines also had a maroon box just just one single box - the separate boxes for attachments and polisher was not introduced until the 509.

Then with the 514 and 515 the boxes were dark grey with a speckled pattern, with a single large red and silver "new angular" logo with stripes.

The 516 box, for the first new streamlined model, was light tan with red "populuxe" rectangular accents along the edge and the angular logo in red.

The attachment box in this set is in crummy condition and the attachment set is incomplete - missing at least the long straight wand and the flexibile hose.
