A world of Mickey Mice (CD 257) which includes the back row of 10th Anniversary N.I.A. (1983) commemoratives in 7-up green, amber, white milkglass, cobalt, amber in a red; various embossings in aqua, clear, ice, green with amber swirls, artificially carnivalized glass; a brown porcelain in the front row left of center. 

The "half' insulator in the middle up front has an interesting story. This particular piece was removed from an old traction line power house in Arcanum, Ohio. The powerhouse was built in 1900. There were two of these purposefully broken to as to fit snug against the wall where the outside service wires entered the power house. In 1996, I was fortunate enough to acquire the two insulators. The fragile condition of the second insulators does not permit me to transport.
