Bird Electronic Corp. chose a unique way to celebrate the production of its 300,000th Model 43 Wattmeter. The Solon, OH firm gold plated that meter when it came off the line and put it up for auction. Funds from the month-long auction, which closed after press time, will be donated to a charity of the winning bidder's choice. Bird began making the Model 43 in 1952.
