CD 136 B & O, Light Green; Railroad-embossed insulator!
View:  Main (LargeView 2 (Large)
Lot 69: CD 136 B & O [060]  Color: Light Green  Description: The Hemingray collectors would probably turn this to the "PATENT DEC 19, 1871" side, however technically the front is "B & O". This combination of embossings indicates that Hemingray produced this insulator. [  UPDATE: Correction: The prevailing opinion is that the glass CD136 B&O pieces made by Brookfield and Hemingray were produced for the B&O Telegraph Company which was a B&O Railroad subsidiary and was in business from around 1879 until 1888. Thank you Chris Renaudo!] A 1/8" ding on the upper wire ridge, otherwise very near mint. A nice find for those who collect railroad-embossed insulators.
