The mold was modified to improve the finished product by the addition of a couple of air vents on the reverse shoulder, but that's the only thing I noticed. Until Andy mentioned the base on his.
I sure would like to see a photo of Andy's.

Lilienthal & Co. / Distillers
Recently a large badge Lilienthal sold on eBay for well over $400~. Granted, it was a nice example. Here is one, right from my personal collection, which is arguably every bit as nice - if not nicer .
Crude glop top in a medium orange amber, lighter at mid section. Loaded with swarms of bubbles which twist in two "barber poles" all the way from the top of the neck through the shoulder and into the upper mid section. Additional swirls are present throughout, as are champagne and seed bubbles. The top has generous spillover. The embossing is STRONG. It is in original un-cleaned condition and is free from post production damage. A couple of very light hard to detect scratches keep it from being called "mint".
I've got numerous additional photos of this example. Email at email@example.com if you'd like me to forward them. A top example!
