I was clearing off old photos on my phone to make room for grandkids photos, and found this old picture from 4 or 5 years ago. This is a Brookfield/New York CD 102 pony that my son Patrick got off of eBay. It was in a large group of other legit insulators that he was interested in, and this was an unexpected find. The seller isn't a collector, and had no history of where any of the insulators came from. I am certain the seller had no idea that this was altered. Looked spooky to me when Patrick asked me to look at it, so I put it out in the sun all summer. I took a before, 4 week and end of summer picture. Yup, turned aqua as suspected.
