I have seen a triplex type in 1 home built about the 1950's. I never saw a quinplex type like this.
The Sierra triplex was popular in the mid-to later 50's. They also made a model, that was made for switched receptacle application. One of the three receptacles had a red dot.
They also made a duplex 5-15, grounding type, that used the same plate.

My first house was built in 1928 an had those in every room. Just one per room.
I don't think those were originally installed. Someone must've changed them, because there was just one receptacle per room.
That home was originally wired for electricity.
I lived in two homes, that were wired for electricity, years after the home was built. These homes were wired in the mid-20's, using the old BX. :rolleyes:

Is that photoshopped?

You'd think it was a device that came out of an earlier type outlet strip, the metal cases ones, with the circuit breaker and on-off switch. :rolleyes:
Those strips proved that back-stabbed connections are no good for heavy current applications.
