Gentlemen,

I saved these 4 cable drums from a recycling site. I assume that they are all dated of the ww2 era.

However, as to the cables themselves, I do believe that the only one from ww2 era is the black one with textile cable coating.

 

The brown and golden cables look to me as plastic coating from a later date.

 

Is that correct?

 

Thanks for your feedback.

 

Best regards

Philipp

Thanks phantomfixer!

You mean the whole drum DR-8-A is post war, not only the wire?

 

Hence,

Drum DR-8-A: post war

Drum DR-8-A FR: ww2

Drum DR4: ww2

 

Did I understand that correctly?

Hi Olivier,

FR = French - that makes sense.

 

Hence, to summarize:

DR-8-A: post war

DR-8-A FR: post war

DR-4: WW2

 

Correct?

 

Thanks

Philipp
