CD 154 - Type III, Mold L9

Color: BI-Color Lt. Blue Aqua/Green
w/Amber streaks and tiny bubbles
Base Type: CDP:w


Features: Lettering generally is very strong, deeply cut with triangular edges. On front, the L logo is shallower with rounded edges. On reverse, the right leg of the A of U.S.A. is cut at an angle to the right. The mold number is die stamped. The lower part of the skirt shows a series of horizontal machining marks that begin about 20mm from the base and extend to the base rim (see below).

Additional Information: This is the second CD 154 Lynchburg mold with this number (CD 154, Type II Mold L9), a rare occurrence among Lynchburgs. It is uncertain whether this is a reworking of the original Type II, Mold L9 to repair deterioration of the mold surface, a modification of another mold, or a new mold. In any case, CD 154 Type III, Mold L9 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.
