CD 106 - Type II, Mold G1

Color: Lt. Aqua
Base Type: CDP:w


Features: Lettering is crude and shallow, with rounded edges. On the front, LYNCHBURG is placed high near wire groove and is very weak. Due to the pressure of pressing the glass to form the threads, in all but the first insulators made from this mold the lettering is very worn to the point of being indistinguishable. On some pieces only LY is discernable.The L logo is nearly circular. On reverse there is a small circular blot-out beneath 1, the periods in .U .S .A are placed before the letters, and the S slants to the right. This mold was retooled twice,CD 106 II, Mold G1.1 and CD 106 II Mold G1.2.

Mold Number Location: On reverse beneath the vertical side of D.
