Sagging

Examples of sagging, lopsided insulators that are tilted to one side or in which the skirt is oval rather than round. The most common examples are tilted in the middle around the wire groove, the result of removal from the mold before the glass was set. A much rarer example is a lopsided skirt that is more oval than circular, the result of the insulator falling over after removal from the mold and the heavy skirt sagging before the glass set. Both examples are scarce in Lynchburgs, and valued by specialty collectors.
