Lot 186: CD 731 TILLOTSON & CO. [010]  Color: Light Aqua  Description: The crown-embossed "TILLOTSON" variant is much less common than its unembossed counterpart. Luther Tillotson was a superintendent of telegraph for The New York and Erie Railroad and ran a telegraph and railroad supplies business in New York. CD 731 was known as a "Compromise style" insulator, combining the best features of the "egg" and the "hat" styles. A couple of 1/4" skirt flakes, typical annealing lines in the skirt and pinhole; overall very nice for an old threadless insulator.
Estimate: $400 - $500  Open: $1
