CD 306 - Mold 5
*this piece has base damage on reverse
General Features: This mold is reworked from CD 281, Mold 5 to add top groove. Lettering is strong and even with rounded edges; both front and reverse lettering are considerably off center to the left in relation to the top groove. NO. 180 is located on top of the left ear; it is much shallower and partially recessed. On reverse, there is a large circular blot out above and between MADE IN and U.S.A., followed by a much smaller circular blot out to the right; there is a wide space (about 45mm) between MADE IN and U.S. A. A series of faint horizontal tooling marks encircle the lower 12mm of the skirt.
Mold Number Location: on reverse to the left of MADE.
