Color: Blue Aqua w/green swirls, tiny bubbles
Base Type: CDP:w, slanted inward

Features: Lettering is strong with both rounded and triangular edges. On front, L logo is weaker with rounded edges and is more circular; LYNCHBURG is strong, slightly uneven, with triangular edges; C is similar to G. On reverse, lettering is strong with triangular edges. The mold number is die stamped and weaker.

Additional Information: This is the second CD 154 Lynchburg mold with this number (CD 154 Type II, Mold L12), a rare occurrence among Lynchburgs. It is uncertain whether this is a reworking of the original Type II, Mold L12 to repair deterioration of the mold surface, a modification of another mold, or a new mold. In any case, CD 154 Type III, Mold L12 is a slightly different shape, yet seems to have replaced the original Type II Mold L6, and so carries the same mold number.

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