I bought this off of a collector in Northern Ontario a couple of years ago.Apparently a small group (6-8?) of these were found on an abandoned power line leading to a mine somewhere in Ontario.I am sure there are some of you out there that have an item like this from the same find?

Hi All:
The 162.4 1678s in dark olive green all pretty well originated on a private spur line to a mine/mill out of Grenville Quebec. The insulators from this line were fed into the hobby through 2 guys, from the lineman who wrecked out the line while working for Hydro Quebec.
I have not heard of the olive 162.4s being found anywhere else.

That's the story as I've heard it 2nd hand.
Good collecting .............. Robin
