Lot 99: CD 160.6 AM. TEL. & TEL. CO.  Color: Light Aqua  Description: {MLOD} Two 1/8" base flakes on the rear next to an open bubble. Really good condition. Samuel Oakman's patent date of Nov 13, 1883, for a double petticoat design, appears on the rear of this early insulator nicknamed the "Pilgrim Hat". Although most AM. TEL. & TEL. CO. embossed insulators were tolls and transpositions, there have been a limited number of this scarce older style recovered from Massachusetts and New York. These "Pilgrim Hats" were produced for the American Telephone & Telegraph Company by Brookfield. A great early threaded piece of glass!
