Description

#1582       CD 126       Unmarked.        Light green.      Mold line over dome.

A highly unusual and rarely encountered mold variant!  The dome is oddly shaped, having a somewhat peaked top.  Other than the very top of the dome, the overall contours are quite similar to some of the embossed "RD 149959" examples.  

Very crudely molded with numerous folds and creases on the glass surface, all the way around the insulator, from top to bottom.

Has an exceptionally long pinhole, similar to that found on tall transposition insulators.  Most insulators have between five and seven spirals in the pinhole, this dude has ten! 

There's a point extending down from the top of the pinhole and fairly well made threads.  Both are characteristics of "Pennycuick threads," yet the threads in this insulator are not quite as sharp and pronounced as the Pennycuicks.  The threading and glass color/characteristics are also similar to some Canadian insulators, produced at about the same time this insulator would have been made.

Quite an unusual variant!

Very near mint, with a 5/8" annealing flash line up from base.

Update:  11:55 A.M. Monday, September 5.  Second image added, showing the flash at bottom center.   The small, irregular shaped area near the base, left of center, is not a chip or flake, rather a fully enclosed bubble inside the glass.
