This insulator has some damage on the base. About 9 drip points are still whole but a lot of the others are chipped. There are about 11 drips chipped up a lot, that most of it is missing. There areas four areas were a chip goes up on to the skirt from the chipped drips, but only a 1/2 inch or less. There is some bruise that would be expected from the chips on the base. Sounds worse that it is. The rest of the insulator in very good shape. Maybe just one little fine flake off the wire grove. Would be great piece for a back yard pole or beginning CD 162 colors. $40 plus shipping.
