Lot 9: CD 164 H.G.CO.  Color: Lilac Purple  Description: Only seven CD 164's embossed H.G.CO. in any shade of purple are known, and among them there is some color variation. This insulator is lighter in color and has a different hue. The mold was originally for smooth base insulators, as the embossing is the early "transition style." If you get into condition specifics, there is a 1/4" flake at the left mold line and a chipped drip point. Below "1893" is a closed bubble and not damage. This example is perhaps in better condition than CD 162 signals costing a tenth less. We'll put the estimate under the book value and see where it goes. A collector doesn't have an opportunity to see one of these pieces often, let alone to purchase one, especially in this fine condition and stunning color. A "top shelf" piece for sure. Don't pass this by!
Estimate: $4,000 - $5,000  Open: $10
