Mold

Description
Two-part rectangular mold with two small and two large cavities, each pair with its own sprue hole at center of sides; two registration pins and holes are in opposite corners. Small cavities appear plain with tapered sides and flat well. Large cavities are deeper with rounded sides and convex wells; the top right cavity on both parts appears to have the raised letters "FC" or "FG" in reverse while the top left cavity on one part looks to have the raised number "1895".
