Description

#183     735     MULFORD & BIDDLE.     Light aqua.

A threadless insulator dating from the mid to late 1860's.  Found almost exclusively in the western US and British Columbia, Canada, including the Union Pacific Railroad in Wyoming, where quantities of them were installed.  Only a handful of examples are known to have been found in the eastern US and Canada. 

An exceptional beauty remaining in very near mint condition.  Appears to have been tumble cleaned with some haziness still present on the pinhole interior. 

From the collection of the late Lawrence Carpenter.
