All Insulators Crown Jewels of the Wire

Fundraiser Insulator Auction - February 2023


About Crown Jewels of the Wire:
For 50 years Crown Jewels of the Wire has been the leading publication for glass and porcelain insulator hobby news, history, articles with columns devoted to worldwide insulators, show reports, in-depth research articles, meeting announcements, photos and other insulator information. There is something for everyone who enjoys insulators!

Starting with the Spring 2019 edition, Crown Jewels has become a full-sized, 8.5” x 11”,  full color magazine that will be published quarterly.

About the auction: The point of this auction is to help raise funds for the production of All Insulators - Crown Jewels of the Wire Magazine and the development of future hobby-related projects. The auction will be online only.
The auction is more critical than ever to help offset the production costs, such as the increased postage and paper costs.

NEW FOR 2023. To motivate more collectors to consign, we will be reducing the minimum value on a consigned insulator from $100 to $25 (With a Minimum consignment fee of $15 or 12%, whichever is larger, default percentage is 15%). Doing so will enable people to consign a more comprehensive range of insulators. Doing so will also give bidders a broader range of items to bit do! It's a win-win scenario

There are two different consignment options.

The first is a percentage model like traditional auctions, but with a twist. You get to pick the consignment percentage! There is a minimum percentage of 12%. This is to let you decide how much money goes to All Insulators - Crown Jewels of the Wire Magazine. The minimum item value of $100.

The second option is the traditional “donation” of insulators (or another way to look at it is a 100% consignment percentage.) The minimum item value of $25.
