"And no one has yet figured out what they were used for."

My guess would be for a medical purpose. I was just a kid :shock: :wink: back then but wasn't most anything and everything used for medical purposes?

I think they were Warmstrong's hearing aid batteries.

Those old time batteries were supposed to have been used to gold plate lead figurines. So, if you ever buy an old "gold" statue, it just may be lead that was gold plated.

BTW, they had hearing aids back then. They just didn't fit in your ears. You married them and they told you everything you needed to know.

Actually, I'm looking forward to the return to diapers. It's only a few years off, and think of the convenience.
