Description

#615      740.1      Unmarked.     Aqua.    

The 740.1 saw usage in various places.  They have been found in Ontario, along the main line Grand Trunk Railway right-of-way, and on the Grand Trunk between Montreal, Quebec, and Portland, Maine, primarily in Maine. Some have also been located on the Great Western Railway in Canada.

The 740.1 is similar in overall design to a 740, except the 740.1 has an additional raised ring below the wire groove.

Wonderful, crude surface with an abundance of creases and "road map" pattern.

Outer area of the insulator remains in excellent condition.  Has a thumbnail base chip and associated skirt bruise (see second image).
