Mould Alloy

No, I’m not talking about the alloy that goes into the mould, rather I’m curious about the alloy from which the moulds are made. Rumor has it that at one time a higher grade of aluminum was used to make the multi cavity moulds and a lesser grade for the basic 2 cavity moulds. At some later time, the alloy for the 2 cavity moulds was upgraded to be equal to their multi-cavity siblings.

First, is this information accurate, and second, if it is accurate, when did the upgrade occur? Any and all accurate input will be gratefully received.
