    Need a picture but there were numerous (translated 1000's+) variations in fruit jars due to the way they were produced in the early years not all of those are considered Rare.

    Here it is. Notice it says "Sell Sealing" not SELF Sealing. I have never seen anything mis-spelled before. It looks like it is also in the early days of molding glass bottles.
    Thanks again for any input. I am a babe in the woods at this point and am starting to learn a lot about mostly Mason jars and there differences.

    This is a known error jar. There were many other in the Kerr line. It doesn't add a great deal of value but some collectors seek them.
