CD 154 - Type II, Mold L6

Color: Ice Blue w/tiny bubbles *
Base Type: CDP:W slanted inward

*temporary photos

Features: Lettering is smaller than usual, generally even with triangular edges. On some pieces the lettering is crisp and sharp (see below), while on many pieces the lettering is very worn (as in piece above), often with parts of letters indistinct or illegible. On front, several letters (H, B, R) show irregularities in shape; the L logo is off center to the right. On reverse, the S slants slightly to the left. The mold number is often indistinct. On some pieces there is evidence of flaking of the mold around the skirt, evidenced by "blotches" of slightly raised areas (see below).

Additional Information: There is a second CD 154 Lynchburg mold with this number (CD 154, Type III Mold L6), a rare occurrence among Lynchburgs. It is uncertain whether III, L6 is a reworking of this mold to repair deterioration of the mold surface, a modification of another mold, or a new mold. In any case, CD 154, Type III Mold L6 is a slightly different shape and seems to have replaced this mold, and so carries the same mold number.

Note the very worn lettering on the left mold compared with the sharp clean lettering on the right mold.

Arrows mark "blotches" on the skirt (also visible around the 4 in photo above left) indicative of flaking of the surface of the mold.
