Subject: [FJGRailroad] Insulator InfoExcuse if this shows up twice but it doesn't look like
it went through the first time.
I did a little checking on the internet and found the
following information. The insulator was made by the
Lynchburg Glass Works in Lynchburg, Virgina between
November 1923 and May 1925. The company was only in
production for a total of 44 weeks during that period.
Insulators were their main product along with some
mason jars and bottles - they produced about 2 million
insulators during their short existance. The
production facility was served by a spur from the
Southern Railway. The most common color glass was an
aqua - green, blue, pink, and milky aqua were also
produced and are more collectable. The markings you
describe are typical - the L in the oval is the
company trademark. A quick check of E-bay showed a
pair of aqua #10's selling for $25.00.
