Lot 62: CD 109 CHICAGO INSULATING CO.  Color: Light Blue Aqua  Description: Great flutes! No chips or flakes. This was one of the two styles of the patented "Fisk & Mott High Resistance Insulator" sold by the Chicago Insulating Company. Several dings and scuffs here and there, one of which affects "O" and "T" in "OCT." 1/8" open bubble and flaking and a 1/4" bubble with some flaking that affects "I" in "INSULATING." The CD 135 style is much easier to obtain than this "Chicago Teardrop Pony" style. The flutes, designed to hold the wire away from most of the wire groove, make this quite an unusual and desirable style. This is quite rare and of special interest to the CD collector!
Estimate: $2,000 - $2,500  Open: $10
