Lot 147: CD 267 {Unembossed}  Color: Blue Aqua  Description: Very, very near mint with the typical minor rubbing in the saddle, caused by years of use holding up heavy copper cables on the Boston transit system. Tracks were laid out in Boston as early as 1873 for horse-drawn trolleys. The old Orange Line, which was built around 1900 and decommissioned in 1988, was part of the electrification plan. This particular insulator has excellent clarity, allowing light to easily pass through the thick glass. What an attractive example!
