    ?

    I have now tried to read this 5 times, and I still don't understand what you're asking!!

    Is there something you're missing in the set? and if so what..

    If you first of all put a period between sentences, maybe then I could understand you..
    (being danish doesn't help either..)

    is your set something like this?

    You have a Busch "Vade Mecum" Lens set - also known as a Casket set. Attached is a period ad from "The Photo Minature" magazine July 1899 regarding your set.
