CD 162 [080] H.G. CO. / PATENT MAY 2 1893 // PETTICOAT, transition embossing, sharp drip points, Hemingray blue color, 1 dome ding in back, light roughness on sharp mold line around upper wire groove, 1 chipped drip, 2 slices out of drips. The drips on this look pretty big. Hemingray originally made this insulator without drip points but when the patent was issued, the patent date was squeezed below the front embossing thus this is one of the first insulators with drip points. $125 postpaid PayPal Friends & Family, check, or money order. Rick Soller, 4086 Blackstone Ave., Gurnee, IL 60031. Return for a refund with 14 days if not happy (buyer pays return postage). More pictures available on request of the other sides and of the drip points.
