Up for sale is a great B CD 145 in the No. 44 or [070] EIN. This one is sure to brighten your day with a pair of "smile-shaped" bubbles in both the front and rear crowns - the one in the front measures about 1/2" in width and just under 7/8" in height and just skims the surface of the glass. The one in the rear is just under 7/8" in width and 1/2" in height and is definitely the more smile-like of the two. There are also a fair number of finely dispersed amber wisps all throughout the glass on this one. These show up nicely in a backlit display cabinet. This one would have been a S.W. Ontario Canadian Pacific Railway-used piece and I can't recall where I would have got it from 10-12 years ago. None-the-less, it's a nice piece with some great character!

Good shape, with a 1" annealing fracture in the rear skirt, and a bit of base edge roughness/small flakes on the inner base edge along the left mould line. One area 5/8" wide and the other 1/2" wide. Seems like these always have a few flakes around that MLOB inner RB edge.
