ICON close-up #5 Bubbly & Amber swirled Brookfield CREB Insulators
The insulator on the left is embossed: "W BROOKFIELD" / "NEW YORK" (back) "A" / "PAT NOV. 13TH 1883" / "FEB. 12TH 1884" You can actually read the embossing, which is a little unusual for a Brookfield, so many of them are lightly embossed. The embossing is also quite large for a Brookfield. This is the first dated one I have seen without a street address. The insulator is loaded with fizz as can be seen in the photos. There is also a 2.5" stretch bubble that is under the embossing FEB 12TH 1884, and is a little longer than the date. Damage consists of two small base chips and one inner petticoat tiny chip. There is also an abrasion to the "E" in NEW. $85 plus shipping (NOW $75 + Shipping). The nicly amber swirled one on the right is embossed: "4" (backwards) / "W. BROOKFIELD" (arc) / "45 CLIFF ST."/ "N.Y." (can't read N.Y.). The embossing on the back is very weak. I can see "PAT" and "4" Aqua/ nice amber glob and streak, some annealing cracks/ $35.0 plus shipping (SOLD).
