Lot 226: CD 402 FLAMEREX // TS {Italy}  Color: Light Straw  Description: 1/4" flake on the inside top of the threads, otherwise very, very near mint. This insulator has been referred to as both a "two-part dry spot insulator" and a "terminal insulator". It has a glass cap that screws down on the top of the insulator. What is quite odd is that the pinhole is off center! Originally these were embossed "PYREX", but by using that name they had to pay Corning Pyrex of New York a royalty. By using their own trademark for this glass, they avoided that issue. Lot 223 also avoided the trademark royalty with its "HARDEX" embossing. This insulator is in great condition and is a really odd piece!
