Lot 182: CD 742.3 M.T.CO.  Color: Fizzy Teal Blue  Description: An attractive fizzy Teal Blue! This insulator was listed in our previous auction but had a clear coat on it which had yellowed, giving it more of a teal appearance. The insulator was soaked to remove the coating. The coating had hidden some of the haziness, perhaps from being buried, but now it looks very presentable, and more importantly, true to color, with the coating removed. A little base flaking, but not that bad. See lot 181 for an unembossed example of this style. This insulator is boldly embossed "M.T.Co" on the base for the Montreal Telegraph Company. A nice Canadian threadless!
Estimate: $800 - $1,000  Open: $10
