Lot 167: CD 196 H.G. CO. / No 51  Color: "Hemingray Blue"  Description: Several drips on the base are blunted, 3 of the typical slices on the umbrella that affect a few drips each, not really bad for this damage-prone style. This is the less common No 51 style embossing. It is interesting to note that the embossing on the front is written in large script, while on the rear is the typical stamped embossing. The color is very similar to the Hemingray blue found in later Hemingray-embossed insulators, but not quite as blue. The trade name for this style is the "Perfect Transposition" and this would be the perfect addition to your collection! (#7003)
