      Hi, Charles,

      I'm in Southern California. OK, is a 6-pt mold for text type and a
      12-pt for display? I guess I have sort of seen a few Ludlow slug
      pictures on the Internet, but they were not very clear. If you run
      into one, please do send it.
      Thank you!

      Lisa
