What type of wire is this?
 
Quick question for you experts. Cleaning out an estate and have a roll of service entrance wire (maybe 90 feet left).

The wire reads e39725 s aa-8000 al type se cable style r xhhw-2 600v 3 cdrs 4/0 awg i cdr 2/0 awg ul.

Looks like 4 AL wire service wire to me, with 3 big wires and one slightly smaller. But I am confused if this is considered 2-2-2-4 wire? I am trying to figure out a fair sale price on it to help the persons family out and am not sure what it is worth as their seems to be quite a variation in service entrance wire prices. It looks brand new.

Thanks

By no means am I an expert.

type se = Service Entrance
cable style r = Round
xhhw = Cross-linked High Heat Water Resistant
3 cdrs 4/0 = 3 conductors, each size 4/0 (0000)
1 cdr 2/0 = 1 conductor, size 2/0 (00)

I "think" this would be referred to as 4-4-4-2 cable?

4/0 SER. Used for subfed panels.

It's 4/0-4/0-4/0-2/0 cable. That's pretty huge.

It's worth nothing, send it to me :-)

It's 4/0 4/0 4/0 2/0 SER aluminum cable. Call your local Home Depot for a current per foot price.
