BOYD'S lid

I found a jar lid while snoop'n around for a new dig'n spot. It looks like tin, has a milk glass insert that says BOYD'S genuine porcelain lined cap - 12-  I would'nt think it is very old, 20's 30's ?  and also, was this cap used on jars embossed BOYD'S or was this a common lid for most fruit jars of the time?  Thanks

    There are Boyd's canning jars but the caps could be bought separately and used on other brands of canning jars. They are common and could date from the late 20s to at least the late 50s. Caps are always a good find especially if you collect canning jars.

    I believe the metal part is actually made of zinc.
