CD 106 - Type I, Mold G4.1
Features: Retooled CD 106 I, Mold G4; lettering is strengthened, now strong with triangular edges. On front, a die stamped mold number is added to the right of L logo. The small vertical stroke to left to the left of the L logo is still clearly visible. On reverse, the original period after A is visible (see below). The original Gayner mold number beneath the upper part of D is mostly obliterated but traces are still visible.
Additional Information: Before retooling, this mold was also produced with a Type II crown top, CD 106 II Mold G4, one of the few proven examples of a Lynchburg mold's bottom two thirds being used with more than one crown mold (see comparison below).
Mold Number Location: On front to the right of L logo.
Arrow marks original period following A.
