Lot 64: CD 143 GREAT NORTHWESTERN  Color: Milky Aqua  EIN: [020]  Description: This is the less common variation with "GREAT NORTHWESTERN TELEGRAPH CO." fully spelled out, and it wraps around the entire skirt. What is interesting about this insulator is that there are some pronounced milk swirls in the skirt that make a full wrap or more around the pinhole. They then travel up to the middle of the insulator where the milk is thick enough to create a translucent effect, to the top of the pinhole which is transparent glass. 1/4" wire ridge chip, 1/4" dome bruise, otherwise about very near mint. A great character piece!
