Anyone have the link to the website on how to date Ball jars by the way they were written? I dug my first Ball jar today and want a date.

So Madman, if I have a Ball that seems to incorporate two different time ranges, then I might be safe in splitting the difference in dates (mine looks like a combination of the 1896-1910 and 1910-1923 writing)? In this case, about a 1910-vintage jar?

That pic helps a lot. Are there any more out there for atlas, drey, lamb, etc? Would I be better off just buying the Red book as I have seen here?
Thanks,
Doug
