Description

#2320     CD 106      HEMINGRAY  NO 9      PATENT MAY 2 1893.      Medium-dark amethyst.

A fairly dark amethyst shade for this type insulator.

Still retains decades of soot and grime on the insulator surface... it's never been cleaned.

Found recently in the barn of a "picker" in Central Pennsylvania.  This item, along with Lots #2319 and  #2321 were all discovered together this past winter, nestled inside a bucket with other insulators!  Also included was a CD 200 "No 2 Transposition."  Quite a discovery!!!

One drip point is only partially flaked.  Remainder of insulator is very near mint, having only a couple minor surface blemishes.
