Collections : CD 104 NEW ENG.TEL.& TEL.CO [075]

Only one style of the CD 104 NEW ENG.TEL.& TEL.CO (New England Telephone & Telegraph Company) in Hemingray made. That is the [075] embossing. There are some units out there that are very close looking to Hemingray ones but are not. Vast majorly of CD 104s are NOT Hemingray made. There are some common Hemingray characteristics that will get you on the right track to Identifying Hemingray made CD 104s. Remember, there are some that have most of those characteristics but are not Hemingray!

  • As with all Hemingray insulators, they will never have a MLOD (Mold Line Over Dome) Hemingray used 3 pice molds. If the Insulator has a MLOD you can quickly eliminate it as being Hemingray.
  • The Hemingray ones do NOT have dome numbers or glass dot.
  • Sharp mold lines on the dome, Similar to what you see on a CD 112.4 Hemingray No 8.
  • Tight Arc in the embossing.
  • Thin crisp embossing.
  • The CO. Is on the same base line as the Arc embossing.
