Mystery Object of the Month: What Is It?

J. Hans Hofenk of Abbottsford, British Columbia, writes, “I found this article in our local MCC (Mennonite Central Committee) store. The inscription on the front reads ‘NATCO,’ and the cord is covered in asbestos and is very brittle. I would be delighted if someone could tell me what it is!”
