CD 164 - Mold 1.1
Features: Retooled CD 164 Mold 1. Lettering is now strong with triangular edges; on pieces made later the lettering is worn and appears more rounded (see below). On front, the series of large but indistinct circular blot-outs beneath LYNCHBURG are still visible on some pieces. On reverse, NO. 38- is weaker with rounded edges; the circular blot out following No. 38- is still pronounced on some pieces; 3 has extended arms with top arm arched and bottom arm ending in an upward curve; 8 is much larger at bottom (see below). The mold number is usually very weak. New stronger periods are added; there are remnants of previous periods following S and A (see below), although on pieces made later these become harder to see.
Mold Number Location: On reverse centered below NO.
Arrows mark remnants of previous weak periods.
