CD 205 - Mold 2.1

Color: Aqua
Base Types: SB:s


Features: Retooling of CD 205 Mold 2 to change the style number from NO. 53 to NO. 530. Lettering is strong and even with triangular edges. On front, some letters slant slightly to the left; C is similar to G. On reverse, NO. 530 is weaker with rounded edges; the added 0 makes this line off center to the right; MADE is small and U.S.A. is widely spaced; lower curve of S is larger. Mold number is uniquely shaped with a wide base extending to the right (see original Gayner piece below).

Mold Number Location: On reverse below the period following NO.
