Description

 #1684        CD 260         CALIFORNIA         Yellow.     

A fair size number of California helmets were removed from inside of buildings belonging to the Pacific Lumber Company mill in Scotia, California during the late 1960’s and 1970’s.  Various colors were found, including yellow, peach and amethyst. Due to lack of sun exposure, the color of the yellow units remained unchanged over time.  Some of the others, exposed to varying amounts of UV light over the years, turned amethyst or "in between" colors.  The yellow examples found inside the mill likely represent a sizable portion of the yellow units now in the hobby.

The yellow coloration in these sizable power insulators varies, this example exhibiting excellent clarity and brightness.

Shallow flake type chip on reverse center ridge is only 2/3 pinkie nail size.  Inner skirt has a chip that's half the size of a 25¢ coin, and another shallow pinkie nail chip.

Bright, sparking glass with excellent, shiny surface.
