My brother found these in his grandfathers old house and he gave them to me.

The battery in the second photo on the bottom it says:

FOR BEST RESULT
PUT IN SERVICE
BEFORE
OCTOBER 1942 H

Anybody know what the "H" stands for after 1942?

I think the cardboard battery is older than the other one... I'm not for sure... correct me if im wrong.

    When I was a kid (100 yrs ago lol) I used to see the round end metal battery used on electric fence chargers on farms. Haven't seen one for years.

    dstruble46 - Yea i was told it was used for that, if you enlarge the 2nd picture it tells you what it's used for.

    Thanks cocacolakid97
