So, I'm having a hard time understanding the whole 'brick pavers' counting to find the exact flask mold. My Lafayette-Masonic flask has only 4 rows of bricks, adding up to 18 pavers. The closest example to mine is GI-89, and looking at other examples, I still ain't counting that many bricks!

Does anyone have insight on the bricks? I could post a pic (later, I'm working), but you'll count 18, too.
There looks to be a ghost embossing under the arch, with more bricks, but I believe it's a ghost embossing because you can see on the sides of it the faint lines of the base of the arch. So, it was embossing that slumped down when it was being blown.

I'm only bumping this because the flask mold description doesn't have anything about 18 bricks on the arch side, and so I'm stumped on exact mold.
