CD 162 - Type I, Mold G10.1

Color: Lt. Aqua
Base Type: CDP:w


Features: Retooling of CD 162 I, Mold 10 to correct style number. Identical to CD 162 I, Mold 10 except on reverse the dash following 36 is shortened and 190 is replaced by a weak and uneven MADE IN and U.S.A. On reverse, the S is misshapen and slants to the right and the A is slightly larger (see below). This mold was reworked twice, first to stregthen the lettering and widen the wire groove, CD 162 II, Mold 10, and then to further widen the wire groove, CD 162 III, Mold G10.

Additional Information: The original Type I, Mold G10 version of this mold is the only mold of CD 162 that retains all of the reverse lettering from the Gayner mold, including the full Gayner style number, NO. 36-190. That version was quickly retooled to replace -190 with a weak MADE IN U.S.A. (CD 162 I, Mold G10.1). The mold was later reworked to widen the wire groove and strengthen the front lettering (CD 162 II, Mold G10), then reworked again to further widen the wire groove, CD 162 III, Mold G10.

Mold Number Location: On reverse centered below NO.
