Sort of a hunt & find picture. This is the culprit that started the whole insulator collecting mess for me a little more than 35 years ago. I found it half buried along the old (defunct) Frisco line in Kansas City while walking to a friend's house. I don't know why I kept it. I didn't discover any other collectors until a few years later (thanks Bob Green). It was only recently rediscovered by me while repacking a box marked "junk stuff" in my basement. I recognized it immediately. It now has a prominent place on a shelf, next to a few significantly more $ valuable insulators. However, this one is "priceless" to me!
