This is the super popular "make believe" insulator. The VTS was made in Korea (tag is still on dome), where quality control was not a major issue. There are three little spots or pings that were in the manufacturing and on the side of the dome there is what appears to be a 1/2" dia. bruise. Again this is not from use because I got this piece still wrapped in the brown tissue paper that it was shipped in, plus the fact that they aren't real insulators! The total amount that this piece sells for will be given to the Red Cross, so please THINK BIG. I'll also pick up the shipping cost. This auction will end on Sept. 24th at 9pm eastern daylight savings time.
