Latest porcelain finds

Postby Aidan Morgan » Fri Jan 30, 2015 4:51 pm

Here are 4 Imperial Porcelain insulators that I picked up about a year ago. A local hydro line crew were doing a line rebuild near me and I was able to get 5 Imperials in good shape. These are the 4 different ones.

U934 straight side , not very common
U935 3/4" saddle groove, very common
U935B not super rare , but rarely comes on the market.
U935C 1 1/4" saddle groove , super rare. Only about 4 known.
That was a great days find in the mud fields. :o :D

Nice group. Only one I've ever managed to find is a U935.

Question for anyone. How does one downsize a pic to fit this post???? I took this pic with my iPad and it looks great on here, but when I download it to this forum it goes on steroids and I can't find anywhere to resize it to be viewed properly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

You can download a free program called Irfanview which works quite well for resizing.

There are many free photo apps for the iPad that can resize photos. Or if you don't want to download an app, you can try this trick:

Thanks Gordon and Lee, you were a big help. It took me awhile to figure it all out but I think I finally learned something. :roll:
The picture looks better when you can see them all together side by side. :shock:
Thanks again :D
