Probably 40s or 50s I'd guess.

The diamond design center the outlet holes and the border around the edges is very much like the older Arrow - Hart 2 prong receptacles. Possibly A-H madeit for Mohican ? Anyway nice find with that branding!

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!

The design of the threaded hole for the switch plate's screw looks like a modern Eaton/Cooper design. Does Eaton own Arrow-Hart now? If they do, Socketgeek63 could be right.

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

Yes, Arrow-Hart was acquired by Cooper which is now Eaton.

Did Cooper change its name to Eaton or did someone buy them out?

Eaton bought out Cooper. The two were separate companies before that.

Streetlight 98, you’re right Arrow Hart was bought by Cooper ( not sure exactly when ) and about 2 years ago Eaton ended up buying out Cooper. I believe early to mid 200s when Cooper bought out Eagle Electric as well and likely sometimes in the 90s when Eagle bought a couple companies known for replacement plugs - Spring Action and Academy. So Eaton now has all those former companies all under their belt now. At one time Arrow and Hart-Hegeman were once separate companies and they merged together ( sometimes 1926 if I’m correct) and they became Arrow-Hart & Hegeman and they were based out of Hartford Connecticut.

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!

Thanks for the background on their history. I'm quite fond of Arrow-Hart devices. I also like Bryant and an very fond of Circle F switches.

Your welcome streetlight 98, I had always liked the old A-H, Bryant, Hubbell, P&S, Circle F and some other former odd makers of wiring devices.
