CD 154 - Type II, Mold L2
*Drip points are damaged on front
Features: Lettering is generally weak and shallow, uneven with rounded edges. On front, lettering is small; the C and G are slightly larger than other letters; the L logo is slightly off center to the right, is more circular, and often very weak. On reverse, O is slightly larger than N; period after NO is very weak, often not visible; 44 is widely spaced and on some pieces the first 4 is considerably weaker (see below); the horizontal arms of 44 slant upward to the left. The mold number is often indistinct. Lettering is often worn with the skirt showing blotches, indicating deterioration of the mold surface. This mold was retooled, CD 154 Type II, Mold L2.1, to strengthen part of front lettering.
Additional Information: There is a second CD 154 Lynchburg mold with this number (CD 154 Type III, Mold L2), a rare occurrence among Lynchburgs. It is uncertain whether III, L2 is a reworking of this mold to repair deterioration of the mold surface, a modification of another mold, or a new mold. It is likely that it is a reworking of this mold. In any case, CD 154 Type III, Mold L2 is a slightly different shape and seems to have replaced this mold, so carries the same mold number.
