I have a 2quart blue Ball Perfect Mason jar with KKK on it. It has 3 K's,in a row, in between the threads on top(where you screw the cap on). It has a number 10 on the bottom.Does any one know about this jar and why the K's are there?

It sounds like a fluke manufacturing flaw or damage, I can't possibly imagine such embossing being deliberate.. could we see a photo?

I've seen letters embossed in between threads of jars. I think it was some sort of mold identification thing, maybe for the part that formed the mouth and threads. Not unheard of, certainly. Let's see a pic.

Hello Kristine,

Welcome to this place, and thanks for telling us of your jar. The fellas are correct. Photos are essential in a situation like this.

I don't think it's a Black History month issue, myself. Perhaps a Ball mould designation. Too bad it's not base marked...
