flashlarue
(23 items)

Hemingray No 19, CD162, dark olive amber; Brookfield, CD152, olive-green with lots of amber swirls; Brookfield, CD152, deep green; B.T.Co OF Can. (diamond on front and reverse), CD102, royal purple. All four are very near mint. Best of all they only cost me a total of 35 dollars at an antique mall.

I have a question about the B.T. Co. OF CAN. insulator. The dome is also embssed B.T.Co. Is this unusual?

    No, it is definately a 104, no bulge above the groove. It has B. T. Co. OF CAN. and a diamond on the front skirt and a diamond on the reverse skirt. But it also has a faint B.T.Co. on the dome. I can't find any mention of a dome embossed B.T.Co. insulator.

    I added a photo of the dome. The letters are very faint but they show up in the photo.

    This is a symular B.T.Co OF CAN. insulator I found on line.
    But no dome embossing!

    According to John and Carol McDougald's 2007 Insulators, A History and Guide to North American Glass Pintype Insulators, Price Guide shows a Diamond CD102 in Royal Purple with front/reverse diamond embossing ( index No.160 ).
    Put does not show a CD102 Diamond with any Dome Embossing.
    For the price listed for just the front /reverse Diamond Embossing you got one heck of a deal.

    I paid $35 for all 4 together and less than $10 for the 102.

    Sorry, it is a CD 102 not a 104
