Description

#667      742       M.T. CO.      Rich cobalt blue.

Wow!  What a colour!  Various blue shades/hues have been observed in 742 threadless, this perhaps the darkest and most vivid.  Found in southwestern Ontario decades ago,

Embossed on the base, with lettering for the Montreal Telegraph Company.  Note the embossing size is larger than some examples and the position of the period below the "O" rather than to the right.  

Produced circa 1860's.  Although aqua examples are quite common, dark, vivid cobalt blue examples remain rare.

Displays quite well from the side shown in the first photo.  Second photo shows a sizable piece missing from the reverse skirt, which does not affect any of the embossing.  Stands solidly on it's own.

Dick Bowman collection.
