#131     731     TILLOTSON.     Dark cobalt blue.

Vibrant, dark cobalt blue coloration has a purple tone when viewed with bright light.  Reportedly from the Steamer Sherman shipwreck which sank in 1874 off the coast of North Carolina.  

Slightly satin surface.  Has one internal fracture which traverses up form the base to the dome, then follows around the top of the pinhole.  None of the above is visible on the outside surface, and remains invisible unless a very bright light is applied. 

Stronger embossing than most other examples!  Dime size, totally enclosed bubble in the lower skirt allows light to show the color more readily.  An all around sharp looking item!
