Lot 172: HICKOCK'S PATENT 1859 Lightning Rod Insulator  Color: Dark Teal  Description: {Side tab style} The Hickock's Patent lightning rod insulators were some of the earliest styles produced. There are three segments around the opening through which the rod is inserted "...to support and insulate the rod, and also leave open spaces for water to pass through it, and for air, when suddenly expanded, to escape from within it..." Typically, these have a lot of chipping and this one has none! There is a 3/4" bruise on the top flange, otherwise just a few minor flakes. The tab is perfect. A great addition to your collection!
