Is this a throwaway or collectable please. I don't collect fruit jars and can not find this in my books. It has a machine scar on bottom, amber in color, embosed on side in a circle various fruits and vegtables, also numbers for measurement and the name in script Longlife and non script under that, Wide Mouth. Strange top which screws on with a plastic ring that holds a screen mesh over the complete top. Thanks David
