Around here in southern Maine if you're in a early 1900s dump you can't but help unearthing French's. I've personally have never seen one like yours; it must preceed the french's name in the flag logo they patented around the turn of the century. Is that a zinc lid? I'm guessing pre-1900?

I don't have my Redbook with me, but I know this jar is listed - with unmarked glass insert and metal screw band. Seems to me Redbook prices it in the $4-$6 range, which I always thought was underrated. This one appears to be a bit sca as well, always a bonus! -Tammy
