There's some nice stuff there. A bullet, an American beehive I think. What's that glowing peacock blue? Is that a cobalt diamond P next to it? Lots of nice insulators!

The blue and red amber are hemingray 162s. Couple of purple California 162s, royal purple wgm toll at the end. Yup the American beehive next to the cauvets pat bullet, is a good one.

I think it’s the largest single piece of glass they produced, in 1899 and 1900..
It’s in really good condition!

Check out my ugly mount, for insulators.
I carved it out of a dry cottonwood root. The wood is super soft, strong, and very lightweight. It’s a pleasure to carve with. It’s some good walking stick/ cane material. Apparently some SW Native American tribes use cottonwood root to carve “kachina” dolls..
That carved cotton wood may be the single coolest display “shelf” I have ever seen. Nice job.

You could sell them no doubt. The amount of work though, you’d have to sell them for 500$ each!! I’ve made dozens of custom Cornhole boards for friends and neighbors, sell for about 200 a set. Comes out to like $10 an hour for my labor!!
here is my meager insulator collection. I’ve dug 3 and bought a couple others. My rule of thumb is if it’s cheap,3-5$ or less and a unique color or shape I get it. Picked up that light light blue Whitall Tatum for 3$ the other day. Good luck with your sales.

Your “leaning beehive” second from right is interesting. Can you show/tell me more about it?

I was told this is a cd-145 by one of the forum insulator experts. This variety and the bright aqua Hemingray 42 are ones I find on a commuter line right by my house. These two are the least damaged ones I have found.
