    These are all rare examples of Hubbard Pole Nails.

    The Girard nails on the left are two of four known. My friend and I got these from Girard Pa (I believe) before Y2k. We went back several more times but could locate no more despite our efforts. Why such a little town would want to have their own Hubbards is still a puzzle to me. I believe my friend sold his two on ebay a few years later.

    The Western MD Railway Co. is one of two that my same friend had found about the same time. I have not heard of the existence of any others and these have been on the main website showcasing Hubbard Nails for a long time.

    The B&LE (also posted this one separate) is a "one-of-a." Find its posting for more info.
