Hemingray was a prolific maker of electrical insulators (of many types and sizes) for power lines, telegraph, telephone and other uses.Other brand names used by O-I on insulators include “Lowex” and “Kimble“.Many millions of insulators were made at Muncie, up to 1967.This is the very latest instance of use of the “old” O-I mark that I am aware of.Presumably, when this particular mold was pulled out of the storeroom, and used to produce some more bottles (probably for a relatively small order), it wasn’t considered important enough to take the time to re-engrave the trademark.
