it looks like an old volt meter, and the date seems to be March of 45 so I would say yes. Cool item.

According to one site:

 

I-236 Test Unit

 

Part of TE-50

 

Neon and Mazda lamp AC and DC voltage check unit used in maintaining teletypewriter equipment, to check the continuity of circuits which may or may not contain a “voltage”.

Yes it is from WWII the orange MFP and date is when the unit was made fungus proof. I have the one also, nice yard sale find.


"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American . . . There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have no room for but one flag, the American Flag . . . We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language . . . and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Question, how did they make something fungus proof, hoping to learn something new? think.gif

I don't know the process but if you can find one of these I'm sure it will answer your question.
