I mau be wauI may be way off base here, but that reminds me of the Monkey Wards supply that was sold to replace the batteries needed in the console or upright radios, that had A, B and C batteries.... That power supply was basic supply to be placed in the bottom of the console, and connected to the radio with the same wire that would have gone to the batteries. 
  The tubes would have been rectifiers, but I don't remember the numbers. 
  And again, I may be way off base, not knowing the environment it was found, that may have a bearing too.
Have a great day,

Hello All,
I saw this at a garage sale and, frankly, bought it for the nameplate which was still in pretty good shape with only minor scattered pitting.  There was also potential for saving some of the terminals and/or the voltage plate from the front panel.  The outside shell was still in relatively good shape although one corner was cut along its edge and bent back for some reason.
I took the shell off today and peeked inside.  What greeted me was a group of transformers (1 large, 2 medium sized), 2 of what looked to be oil filled capacitors and some miscellaneous power resistors, a relay, and a maze of cloth insulated wires.  Plus quite a bit of dust and grime.  There are 2 4-pin tube sockets as well.
Does this have any sort of value to anyone at all or should I just keep the nameplate and recycle the rest?  It weighs quite a bit and is about the size of a full-size car battery. 
I intend to either ship it to someone who is willing to pay the cost or remove the name plate, front voltage id plate, possibly salvage a transformer, then recycle the rest.  Hopefully I can move this thing out of my garage within this next week.
Any feedback or expressions of interest would be appreciated.
Best Regards,
