    I think a classified breaker is listed for most panels

    CH type are 3/4" wide with sandalwood colored handles, Eaton does have classified breakers for Challenger though.

    There are two different designs of Challenger panels. The later design can use Eaton BR breakers. The earlier design has a different arrangement of the stabs and cannot use BR breakers. They look identical with the deadfront on. You have to pull some breakers to verify which design you have.
