There are four types of Gayner CD 106.
Gayner CD 106 Type I is characterized by a small dome with a 7mm slightly sloping rim between the dome and edge of the wire groove. The lower wire groove lip is thick and squared with a relatively shallow wire groove. These are sometimes called "peak tops."
Gayner CD 106 Type II has a flatter crown with a slightly narrower crown rim (6mm). The lower wire groove lip is thick and squared, about 7mm high. This shape is sometimes called "hat top."
G Type III has the same flattened "hat top" crown as Type II. The difference between Type II Type III is in the shape of the lower wire groove lip. In Gayner CD 106 Type III, the lip is more rounded and thinner, about 5mm high. (see comparison at right),
Gayner CD 106 Type IV is characterized by a rounded crown that slopes to the upper wire groove ridge, which in turn slopes more smoothly to the upper skirt. It is not known whether Gayner retooled most or all of its earlier molds to this shape, or began making new molds. Since the earlier styles are more commonly found and the Gayner Type IV is not as well represented, it is likely that Gayner had only just begun modifying older molds to the new shape when they stopped insulator production.
