These old line soldiers are almost all gone today but they were so cool. I have drug them home over the years as our crew completed repairs and upgrades. There were several different versions of this type with minor improvements during the years of manufacture.

This one is most likely the first generation as it has the forked tongue fuse closure lock with the older cardboard type fuse tube cover. This one is a 100 amp 7.8 Kv rated fuse with the arrestor rated at 9kv and mostly all red brass construction. These are becoming quite collectable as a side go with addition to many collectors.
