ITEM No.:CD No.: 736.7  EMBOSSING: (f) none  COLOR: Dark teal green.  CONDITION: Some minor flaking and wear to the base, a couple of minor ridge flakes.  SUMMARY: At well over 5 inches tall and a hefty 3 pounds, this is unquestionably one of the most impressive early telegraph threadless insulators ever produced. Several documented discoveries of these CD 736.7s have occurred in, or near, rivers. It is thus assumed that their primary use was for long spans at river crossings, which demanded their immense size and brawniness. Utilizing strong base lighting, this insulator displays some nice milky ribbons flowing from the dome down into the skirt. Taking into consideration the age, size and duties imposed on this insulator, the minor flaws should be of little concern. It will display no less than vnm+ at its best side. A key acquisition for the CD or threadless specialist.
ESTIMATED VALUE: $3,000 - $4,000  OPENING BID: $2,000
