W.U. Tel Co. Sounder I-A 4-Ohm and J38. When I was 5 and told my father I wanted to learn Morse code, he asked an old railroad telegrapher if he had a key, and the man gave him this and another sounder. I remember using it with a 6V lantern battery inside the box. The wires in the box are cloth-covered. I don't know if the key is original. The base has "1817" stamped on it but that is obviously not a date. The sounder says "W.U. Tel Co. Sounder I-A 4-Ohm" on it.
