Purple Fest

Postby daverosy » Sun Jul 08, 2012 12:48 am

Got these for a song off a lady who advertised them on Craig's List.

Included was a Withy, Canpac and 3 Brailles...

Pays to keep searching the sales postings and papers.

Nice score!! That is a ton of purple glass.

Craigslist doesn't seem to be used much in these parts, but Kijiji has paid off a few times. Great stuff is still out there and you never know how you are going to find it.

How good are the Brailles? They are impossible to find with no chips or drip damage. Great find either way!!!

2 Brailles are VNM w/only a slight bruise to the drip points.

All in all some of the best I've seen and I have had 8 or so.

Cheers,

Wow, nice finds. It's been nearly a year since I've had an insulator lead that was worthwhile. We just don't see those Brailles in Ontario at all except in collections.

A fantastic find, my friend! It's good to see some more nice Canadian glass re-enter the hobby. Now to get my hands on one of those brailles... :)

Check my trades I have up in "Hunts and Finds" in this forum.

(we don't have a sales / trade column!)

Got any nice ones on the block?

Cheers,

D.
