New? You'd be lucky to find beat-up / scarcely usable fuse holders. ....
Not in this area. I'd say that almost half of the fuse boxes I replace are in great shape. They are only getting replaced for the purpose of cheaper homeowners insurance. I only keep a few on my truck and in the shop, as there is typically an abundance of them. I used to keep all of them, but when I had three five gallon buckets full, and had used only a few of them, I started trashing them all.

Midwest makes a bunch of very easy to replace boxes-meter/panel combo's-panels,etc. The old fuse clips in this box have lost their ability to "hang on". Just replace the the panel,the new panels use breakers.

A disgruntled ex boyfriend perhaps?

I'm surprised the local trailer park handyman didn't offer to bypass the fuse sockets for a case of beer and a pack of smokes
Or maybe the handyman is her ex-boyfriend (of the week)!
