Additional Information


1. "You showed a Birmingham No. 10 (CD 106) in your Research Division (May 1969, page 22). I just traded for one of these plus an unembossed one. It looks exactly like the embossed one as far as size, color, and glass texture. They were from the same line. Bob Vangene, Minneapolis, sent them to me. He stated that the person giving them to him stated that there were also Lynchburgs of the same type of glass on the same line. Has anyone found out who manufactured these Birminghams? Earl N. Armbrust, Jr." "Letters to the Editor," in Crown Jewels of the Wire, April 1970, page 22; available at Letters to the Editor.
