This picture and the next 2 pictures show insulators that have blurry/faint embossing. I am wondering if this blurry/faint embossing is more valuable, less valuable, or valued the same as compared to a crisp/clear embossing insulator.

The insulator in this picture is a CD 155 Hemingray-45 with extremely faint embossing on the F-Skirt.

ANSWER: The faint embossing is caused by too hot glass where you can barely read the lettering, the glass tries to fold back into itself. ., mold paste filling the mold cavities. As for value, it all depends on who would want it as these insulators are unique.

Thanks to Richard Case for the information.
