    INFO Needed on a CD 734 McMICKING, VICTORIA, B.C. 75

    I got this in an auction this week in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. I managed to find the CD number but haven't been able find anything else. I haven't yet accomplished the skills of pictures on a forum so will give what I have. Embossing is McMICKING, VICTORIA, B.C. 75. It's threadless, single petticoat, flat base, 2 1/4" x 3 1/4", MLOD, light aqua. Any information would surely be appreciated.

    Great little article about them here:

    Probably one of the most common if not the most common threadless insulator. Still of some value at ~$125-$150 and definitely a neat piece of British Columbia history.

    Nice find! I've always wanted one of those. As far as threadless insulators go these are one of the more common ones, due to a large cache of them being discovered years ago along an old railway line. That's the story I heard anyway. A few years ago the ones in nice condition were going for around $70 CDN or so.

    Thanks for the replies. The article is very interesting. I started collecting insulators about 7 months ago and I'm really enjoying the history that these pieces of glass have.
