Courtesy of Ebay:

I pulled this electrical panel out of someones home and am selling this beauty at a great price. Don't spend your hard earned money on new, untested equipment, buy used and know that this panel has stood the test of time. Note the beautifully antiqued condition of the bus bars, you can't buy a panel like this at Home Depot! This panel is Romex Racer tested and will provide many hours of service in a residential or commercial environment. Happy Bidding!

Someones junk is someones elses treasure.

This one looks it's ready for the bin.
The product of rotation, excitation and flux produces electricty.

The corrosion around the buss and breaker lugs is remarkable!

I've gotta have this . I'll pay top dollar for this fine panel, only if an equally rusty cover comes with it - can you send it to me by overnight mail ?

HAHAHA! I just went to eBay and actually saw this thing. What a deal - already one bid for it at $1000.00 (reserve not met), and shipping at only $500.00 .

I like a person with a good sense of humor...

I believe this was a joke auction put on by another online forum (Romex Racer) in response to the generator male-male back feeder how-to auction.

OMG This panel looks like it was in the ocean for a year or two... Reminds me of a beach front snack bar I worked on once.... Gotta love the AL connections on that 100A 2P!

I would never consider buying this unless I could see the deadfront and be sure all the breaker blanks and KO's were removed first
