Features: Retooling of CD 162 Type I, Mold G8 to strengthen lettering. On front, lettering is now strong with triangular edges (see below). There are five barely discernible circle blot-outs beneath LYNCHBURG; these may not be visible on all pieces. On reverse, MADE IN U.S.A. is now stronger; periods are especially heavy (see below); the S slants slightly to the right. There are three circle blot-outs beneath MADE IN U.S.A. This mold was later reworked into Type II (CD 162 II, Mold G8), and then reworked again into Type III (CD 162 III, Mold G8). For comparison of the different versions/types, see below.

Mold Number Location: on reverse centered below NO.
