    Hi Rhona,
    Your ground lip Mason's Patent was made from the late 1860's up to about the turn of the century when machine-made smooth lip jars became predominant. The earliest Mason's Patent jars have square shoulders and are referred to as "Crowleytown Mason" & will set you back $400-$600. Jars such as yours that are aqua, with no other markings than what you've stated, sell for $6-$8. Don't give up though, this jar in a great amber or deep green color will sell for the big bucks. Good luck! -Tammy
