View:  Main (LargeView 2 (Large)
Lot 140: CD 262 COLUMBIA  Color: Green Aqua  EIN: [010]  Description: A rich, deep color which is close to green! The "Baby Columbia" insulators contrast well with their CD 263 big brothers in lot 141 and lot 142. 1/2" and 1/8" ear flakes, otherwise about very near mint. This No 2 style, or "Baby Columbia", is smaller in size than the "full-size" Columbias seen in lot 142 and RMO2001. Very near mint. The "tie eyes" design was patented by Samuel Oakman on May 12, 1891 and makes for a unique style of insulator! Although the patent mentions "one or more eyes", the patent drawing shows the insulator with just a single "eye". This "baby" is much less common than the larger CD 263 style; they look great together on a shelf!
