The CD 160.7 American "snow cone" was purchased the weekend before the show by John and Carol McDougald. Having "an hour to spare" before their arrival hour in Cleveland to see their children, they stopped into the Medina, Ohio Antique Mall. In the back room, John spotted an insulator on a metal bracket. You could only see the top of the insulator, so its shape was not evident.
Carol remarked, "That looks like a CD 133 Star in olive green to me."
John's response was "Wrong, Carol, it's an American!" ... "I wonder why Rick Baldwin (who occupies a showcase in the mall), past National Insulator Association president, didn't get this one?" Ooops!
