This is a collection of some use, some NOS, lightning arrestors, antenna insulators, feed line insulators and one very old antenna tuner. The first picture is of the entire group. The others are just closer views of the same items. The pictures were taken showing the worst sides of each part (chips, etc.). Starting at the top left, working down each row, then to the next row to the right, begins with a dark-brown, porcelain "Air Monarch" by "Consolidated". The plastic filler is still t on the under side. It has a minute chip on the lower edge of the two sides. Very very, small; The next one is a "Storm King" by the Solderall Co. of Newark NJ. It is brown porcelain The inscription on it says "Radio Lightning Protector Non-air gap" and the name and manufacturer. The filler on the underside is gone The condition is very good; The next one is "Storm King" by "L. S. Branch manufacturing Co.", also of Newark NJ. The pitch filling in the underside is t but loose. The body of this non-air gap type arrester is brown bakelite. Looks like it has never been used; Next is a black porcelain unit by Philco. The center post is ground and the two outer ones are for "antenna". Philco p/n 27-7741. Condition, new; The round one is from Chicago Radio and it is called the "Jewell". Condition is like new, no chips, etc; The item at the bottom of the row is one example of twelve twin line antenna wire spacers for a pole. The round hole has an interlocking split in it to get around the pole. The twin line is woven in and out of the slots. They are a hard molded rubber and most are brown with some black. All look new; Next row top is a "Dynamic" antenna tuner. The clips are for ground, ground and antenna. The two sliders do the tuning. Just two parallel coils, each with one slider. The sliders have been slid, but condition is like new; Next are three, cobalt blue wire insulators. One has one chip, the next two chips and the third, three chip. The biggest visible in the photo; The same type, but bigger. One chip; Then a cobalt blue porcelain arrester. Filler is in t One chip on one end near the bottom edge; Next row starts with a "Giant Radio Lightning Arrester" by the Eagle Electric Mfg. Co. It is their catalog no. 260. It sits on the box. The next two are the same, in the boxes; Then a Muter aerial eliminator. Stock no. 2600 from the Muter Co. of Chicago, IL. Instructions are on the box. Unused; Last row starts with a two "Parkson" units in the box from the Parker-Aeolus Corp., NY, NY. Brown porcelain; Then a Pyrex wire insulator in the box. It is clear glass and undamaged. The box has three of the end tabs missing; The last one is a "Storm Guard" by L.S. Branch Co. The metal bracket is rusty, but the rest of the unit is like new. The tag is the warranty telling about the $100.00 of free insurance you get with thing. Wonder if it is still in effect? The red color of the tag is fading and may have gotten wet, some time, but all legible. That is the lot ... all for one money.
