Hello, I have a Western Electric Lightning resistor model #29-B on the ceiling in my basement and I'm trying to figure out how old it is. I have seen pictures online of several ones similar to it that have patent dates stamped on the back in red letters (usually around 1914-1917) but mine only reads "29-B" in black lettering on the back of it. I was wondering if anyone else has seen one like mine without the red patent dates on the back? Thank you!

I have one on the ceiling of my basement. My house was built in 1915.

Would you take $900 for it?
thank you for the offer but I think it is priceless to have something so old in my house. I just moved in a couple of weeks ago and when I was cleaning things up, I discovered this relic. It was pretty exciting actually to discover this thing. Thank you for the discussion online here, to those who are a part of this, as it helped me understand better what it was I found.
