Take a look at the grounding/neutral? Is this a service panel?

Might this little getup be a "retro-fit" where the breaker replaced a pony-cleat socket that was being used as a fuse holder? [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

The character who did this is probably related to the same person who began using Lincoln Fuse Protectors. ARGGGHHH!!!!!
