Lot 86: CD 125 HEMINGRAY / W.U. No 5  Color: Deep Purple  Description: 1" stress line on front lower wire ridge that is hard to see, 1 chipped drip. Most of the "purple" W.U. insulators have a blend of sage and purple in them. This one is solid purple! Often, if the piece is solid purple, then the color is washed out. This is a rich saturated purple! These are very rarely offered for sale and this ranks high up on the "seldom seen" scale. A previous example sold with the comment "this insulator has the potential to be the centerpiece of any collection if cleaned". Oh, does this piece sparkle! This WILL be the centerpiece of your collection!
