Here is the insulator I found in the woods taking a walk while at my brothers wedding. Nice aqua color. The stick it goes on was a bonus.

Not a bad find for taking a walk. Hemingray 42s are very common, but no reason you can't enjoy the nice fizz, bubbles, swirls, etc. that turn up in them. The aqua ones are from the 1920s. The "stick" is known as a pin.

I found a lot of the wooden pins. Also some wooden pins screwed onto a metal bolt. Threaded on the outside and inside. Much shorter than the full wooden ones. Thanks for the information.

Yup, the metal type came along later, I think around the 1920s or 30s. The metal part is still called the pin, and the wood piece is called a "cob."

Cool! Thanks for the terminology. You collect insulators? I have found a couple over the years.
