CD 154 - Type III, Mold L2

Color: Blue Aqua
Base Type: CDP:W

piece courtesy Steve Blair

Features: Lettering is generally even and sharp with triangular edges. On front, the L logo is weaker with rounded edges. On reverse, the mold number is clear and die stamped rather than engraved; the tops of both 4s are flattened. The lower part of the skirt shows a series of faint horizontal machining marks that begin about 20mm from the base and extend to the base rim (visible in the front photo above just to the right of G).

Additional Information: This is the second CD 154 Lynchburg mold with this number (CD 154, Type II Mold L2), a rare occurrence among Lynchburgs. It is uncertain whether this is a reworking of the original Type II, Mold L2 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 L2 is a slightly different shape, yet seems to have replaced the original Type II Mold L2, and so carries the same mold number.
