This unembossed pair were dug in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. Always wondered if there was a connection to Hemingray. They are light green, extremely heavy glass, and similar to a 729.3 or 729.4. They are 1/4" shorter than a CD 729. Both have a surface patina from being buried; one is near-mint (as mint can be for being buried) and the other has a clean thumbnail chip on the WG and dome chip (pictures available). Handled by a number of collectors; these are the only two examples known.

Looking for trade for other unique/one-of-a-kind pieces, partial or cash considered. For more pictures of the dig see the following links:
