Item: 104  Description: CD 154 McLaughlin (Unlisted EIN) Mint Green. Only TWO examples of this insulator are confirmed to exist. Made from a common mold that appears to have been modified with a smooth base plate. Fred Padgett looked this piece over and speculated that a problem occurred during a production run and a quick, stop-gap measure was taken to keep the mold in production. Both known examples have been traced to use on the Great Northern Rail Road’s branch line to the gold mining town of Republic, WA.  Grade B: Base flake at right seam line; inner skirt flake; couple surface scratches on right.
Estimate: $100 - $120  Open: $45
