CD 154 - Type III, Mold L1

Color: Blue Aqua w/green swirls
Base Type: CDP:W


Features: Lettering is generally even and sharp with triangular edges. On front, the L logo is weaker with rounded edges. On reverse, the middle arm of E is low; the period after A has an extension to the right. The mold number is die stamped and slightly recessed

Mold Number Location: on reverse above and to the left of U.

Additional Information: This is the second CD 154 Lynchburg mold with this number (CD 154, Type II Mold L1), a rare occurrence among Lynchburgs. It is uncertain whether this is a reworking of the original Type II, Mold L1 to repair deterioration of the mold surface (see below), a modification of another mold, or a new mold. In any case, CD 154 Type III, Mold L1 is a slightly different shape, yet seems to have replaced the original Type II Mold L1, and so carries the same mold number.
