    Rare Ball Jar

    Your jar isn't one converted from a Ball mason but altered from the DREY PERFECT MASON after Ball bought the company. One of the few Dropped A non underscore jars to find.

    58 and 1858

    They are out there but you have to look around and be patient. Most are in collections and show up on auctions.

    First mason jar I've dug. ID help?

    Some of these can be found with -Atlas- at the top above Mason. I'd say around the turn of the century 1900 to 1909. Around 1910 the bead seal jars started replacing shoulder seal jars. Sent from my moto g(6) forge using Tapatalk
