CD 164 - Mold 4
Features: Lettering is slightly uneven and weak, with rounded edges. On front, there are a series of large circular blot-outs beneath LYNCHBURG, and two small circle blotouts above B and R; there is no L logo. On reverse, all of the original lettering is retained, including the Gayner style number NO 38-20; there is no period after NO; the mold number is larger than usual. This mold was retooled to strengthen lettering and add logo, CD 164 Mold 4.1.
Mold Number Location: On reverse below and partially between N and O.
Further Information: This mold was re-lettered from a Gayner CD 164 mold. The same mold also exists without any front lettering (No Name), presumably later lettered GAYNER. There also exists a second and different NO Name CD 164 mold whose origin and production is unknown, although presumably a Gayner product (see below). Assuming that it is a Gayner product, it is unknown why two different molds exist with the same mold number since both Gayner and Lynchburg were meticulous in the numbering of molds.
Detail of the reverse lettering on CD 164 No Name Mold 4; this mold does not have any lettering on the front. This is the same mold used for both Gayner's CD 164 (see below) and Lynchburg's CD 164 Mold 4.

This is a second CD 164 No Name Mold 4 that is clearly different than the first one pictured above,
with lettering placed much higher on the skirt, slightly different lettering, and a differently shaped mold number,
although apparently made by the same company.
