The sun was quickly setting on a beautiful, and unusually mild December afternoon in central Va.  This section of line made me don the phrase 'plastics make it impossible'. Don't you agree?

Maybe plastics don't make it totally impossible. Amidst a cluster of plastic, clear Hemingray CD 154's, and 155's, what a sight to a CD 145 specialist!

I found this beauty on eBay for a very reasonable (and low!) pirce.  CD 145/No embossing-Canada/010 in Straw.  My first Canadian piece, and I can't find the first thing that wouldn't classify it for mint condition.
