Features: Lettering is generally even and sharp with triangular edges, placed close to the base and small. On front, the L logo is circular, weaker with rounded edges; L in logo is small. Vertical line of Y is very short; lower curve of C is longer. On reverse, the two 4s are squared at the top; lower curve of S is larger, periods following USA are large.

Additional Information: This is the second CD 154 Lynchburg mold with this number (CD 154 Type II, Mold L4), a rare occurrence among Lynchburgs. It is uncertain whether this is a reworking of the original Type II, Mold L4 to repair deterioration of the mold surface, a modification of another mold, or a new mold. In any case, CD 154 Type III, Mold L4 is a slightly different shape, yet seems to have replaced the original Type II Mold L4, and so carries the same mold number.

Mold Number Location: on reverse close above the period following NO, above and slightly between O and 4.
