Can anyone identify this choke?

I have a good-sized choke of about 40 lbs, which looks like the 
Chicago "FS" style case, as shown at bottom of image here:

The resistance is about 95 ohms, and the reactance is about 14K 
at 60Hz (no DC) so it is what, about 37H ?

It seems to be gapped, with a thin sheet of cardboard as the 
gapping material. It seems like it is two "E" sections facing 
each other, the appearance is very much like the picture.

The choke has the part number of 15726 stamped in the flat part 
of the end bell sheetmetal.

The two terminals are like the picture, but at the bottom of the 
choke, not the top.

Any help would be appreciated very much.
