CD 154 - Type III, Mold L10

Color: Aqua w/lt. green streaks
Base Type: CDP:w


Features: Lettering is strong and even, with both rounded and triangular edges, placed very close to bottom edge of skirt. On front, L logo is weaker with rounded edges; LYNCHBURG is strong with triangular edges. On reverse, lettering is strong with triangular edges; the 4s are wider than usual. On most pieces, the lower part of the skirt shows a series of horizontal machining marks that begin about 30mm from the base and extend to the base rim (see below); this could indicate the reworking of an original mold or possibly the result of making a new mold. The mold number is die stamped and usually strong, with 0 slightly lower than 1 (see below).

Additional Information: This is the second CD 154 Lynchburg mold with this number (CD 154 Type II, Mold L10), a rare occurrence among Lynchburgs. It is uncertain whether this is a reworking of the original CD 154 Type II, Mold L10 to repair deterioration of the mold surface, a modification of another mold, or a new mold. In any case, CD 154 Type III, Mold L10 is a slightly different shape, yet seems to have replaced the original Type II Mold L10, and so carries the same mold number.

Mold Number Location: on reverse above and between NO. and 44.
