Hello, I went digging a few weeks back and found what I believe to be a fruit jar. I can't find any embossing just an "X" on the bottom. Does this have any value? Just curious. Thanks!

Looks like an early wax sealer fruit jar or storage jar.
Very nice.

Hi DiggerBryan
Your jar is a wax sealer. The RB lists a #3054 as having one BIG X and it says $10-15. I LOVE the applied mouth on your jar. See how it just kind of droops down on the left side of the pic? GREAT! I would guess 1870's jar for sure.

Thanks for sharing the pic. Good luck in your digging.

Hello Paul, Thanks for the information I really appreciate it. I've been doing a lot of digging and keep finding a lot of broken tops to wax sealers and whole ball, atlas also. I haven't brought them home from the dump yet but I will post some more pictures once I do. Thanks again!
