Lot 103: CD 133.4 PATENT DEC. 19, 1871 // 3  Color: Blue Aqua w/ Milk Globs  Description: This insulator has some great milk impurities, with a heavy concentration of milk in the front and bands which loop over the top and around the wire ridge. The contrasting thick and thin areas of milk give it a unique look. Some might consider this a CD 133 because of the slightly convex dome; however, we still consider it a CD 133.4. Compare this with lot 102, which is probably from the same mold. It is possible that the dome has been reglued. Some rear wire ridge and base flaking and dings don't significantly detract from the overall appearance, especially since the milk is most visible in the front. What a character!
