I’m guessing… possibly incorrectly… that the top two contacts are a 300 ohm twin antenna connector.

I’ve no idea what Don’s is, but while we’re posting pictures of mystery outlets…


I had a live one yesterday, in the living room of a 1920's bumgalow, that I've never seen before.

Any ideas?

I think that one is 240V on the -- -- slots, and 120V on the | | slots.

Possibly Joey. After it “sniffed” hot, and noting the condition, I didn’t bother doing any further testing.


This was the hall light switch and hot "fixture".

We won't go into the badly spliced and buried KT wiring. Suffice to say that Dr. Sparky needs to make a house call.

That last ine is interesting. They couldn’t make up their mind what they wanted to plug in there. It looks like it will take a NEMA 5-15, 5-20, 6-15 or 6-20.
