    Its hard to tell from that picture.

    Is it a GE panel?

    Here is a GE panel with discoloration and showing the connection with the breaker removed that only has the discoloration on one part.

    Marc not sure about your bus, but this one got hot. (Someone was bound to do this, might as well be me.)

    The panel in the OP's picture is a ITE, I would say there is not a issue w/ the bus as it seems to be a byproduct of the plating process on ITE AL panel bus', have seen it on later models & if it had been overheating the plastic interior would have been melted. I have a NIB panel on the shelf of that vintage that need to take a look at....

    Looks like an all-in-one or combination device to me. (meter socket, service point and panel).Cant see signs indicative in the limited viewpoint on this ancient monitor with its resolution limitations of the unenhanced photo submitted in and of itself leading to a temperature exposure concern.
