Features: Retooled CD 162 III, Mold G7. Both front and reverse skirts are machined beginning 8mm from the base and increasing toward the base rim. On front, this results in increasing loss of the bottom parts of LYNCHBURG (see below). On reverse, the very bottom edges of NO. 36 are missing, the mold number is no longer visible, and most of U.S.A. is missing, with only remnants of top portions visible (see below). The retooling gives the bottom edge of the skirt a slight outward flare (visible in the right photo above)

Mold Number Location: not visible.
