Lot 3: CD 151 H.G.CO. [030]  Color: Bright True Electric Blue  Description: This true Electric Blue insulator is an extremely rare color, far removed from the color of the Peacock Blue units and a perfect color match to a CD 162 signal, as well as to the CD 257 in Electric Blue offered in lot 10. See view 3 for a color comparison. Probably ten times as scarce as the more "common" Peacock units, such as the one offered in lot 102. Some base chipping in the front, 1" bruise and 2 missing drip points in the rear, a few wire ridge flakes here and there. Produced by Hemingray for the North American Telegraph Company (N.A.T.CO.) The "N.A.T.CO." embossing can appear anywhere on the crown, but on this example it is easily visible from the front. Imagine what an insulator of this color in very near mint condition would sell for. You may not have another chance to purchase a jewel like this one in any condition!
