Lot 141: CD 249 HEMINGRAY [005]  Color: Aqua  Description: This is one large and heavy piece of glass! Amazingly, several dozen of these can still be seen on the top crossarm running down a busy street in New Stanton, PA, both on Google Maps and in person, as we verified on our way home from the 2023 Springfield show! The "0 Provos" were only used on two 33-mile 66KV lines in the Harrisburg/Pittsburgh area. In the late 1990's we drove by this area and could see the insulators glistening in the sun. Quite a sight! The line crosses the PA Turnpike between exits 7 and 8, and at this point the crossarms are doubled up, with 12 insulators on each pole. The line is still in use, although nearly all of the "0 Provo" insulators have been replaced. The "0 Provos" are slowly increasing in price as they become harder to find. 1" and 1/2" flakes/chips on the uppermost wire ridge on the rear, some scuffing on the upper wire ridge and saddle. Overall, not very bad for this big hunk of glass. Get one before they are all gone!
