Federal Electric - Question

Thu Jun 20, 2024 7:05 pm

I’m getting a Federal Signal Model 2 soon, and we don’t know the date. We know it was still in Pennington NJ in the 70s on a pole on Rt 31 at the traffic circle. But it’s marked “Federal Electric”. Based on that info does anyone have an age range?
I own 2 sirens (soon 3). 16+ radios. 5 Cassette players. 4 CD players. 15 of the 16 Wings of Fire books (including Darkstalker)

Made before 1950 as that's when Federal Electric became Federal Enterprises.

I don’t recall if a year was ever confirmed for when the Model 2 began production, but I’d guess it’s about early 1930s to 1948, as that was the year Federal Electric change its name to Federal Enterprises.
