I always thought these old caps were all made of zinc but these two look more like aluminum. Both are BOYD'S GENUINE PORCELAIN LINED CAP. Does anyone know if they were also made in aluminum? Thank you kindly.

Yes! the plain aluminum caps are appropriate for Drey Perfect Mason and Drey Square Mason jars. There are also aluminum caps impressed "Presto" and can be used on Presto Supreme Mason jars.

Thanks for that info jarsnstuff! Just so happens my Drey Perfect Mason had a Ball cap on it so I replaced it with one of the aluminum ones. Here it is, I like it! :)
