Lot 43: CD 134 {Unembossed Pennycuick}  Color: Deep Dark Green  Description: About very near mint. The rich well-saturated green color passes light easily and makes this insulator especially attractive. In 1885, James Pennycuick patented a method of forming well-defined, sharp threads in glass which was used to produce various styles of insulators. Most are unmarked, and CD 134s are one of the several CD styles manufactured using this method. There is a lot of interest in this early threaded variety of insulators today, and the assorted coloration available in this auction makes an attractive lineup. See another deep green example in lot 42, and a contrasting lighter shade in lot 41. (#3060)
