Lot 58: CD 128.4 HEMINGRAY [030]  Color: Clear  Description: Nicknamed "Big Mouth" because of the large "jaws" that were designed to hold a heavy snow load. Most were made with a brass bushing molded into the pinhole to form perfect threads, avoiding damage when it was screwed onto a metal pin. Sometimes you will find fractures around the brass insert in the threads. This example has none, and overall it is in very, very near mint condition. The exact meaning of the "SB" style designation is unknown, although it is likely that the "S" referred to the "steel" pin. In any case, a unique example of a later glass insulator, produced in the late 1930s, that no Hemingray collection should be without!
