    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
