CP U-705 and a "burned" OB Suspension

Postby cdnbeehive » Sat Jan 01, 2011 8:03 pm

While out at a local antique shop, I decided to grab a couple of mud pieces.

First off was a CP u-705 in a light power blue. What's one of these worth? It's got wire rubs and a few chips and scratches.

The other is a 10" OB suspension in their typical light brownish glaze. This one is kinda neat as it suffered damage during a flashover event. The glaze has been burned as seen in the photos. The metal bell is also roasted here.

Just thought these were kinda neat and grabbed 'em.
