Hey all! First post- I seem to get most the answers I’m looking for through previous threads! I have an order in for the red book- it’s still not arrived and I can’t be patient enough to find out more about this jar
Any information/ situational history on it?
Is it an error jar?
The photos should explain my questions pretty clearly

If it is a pint could be a # 213-2 the description reads "wire upside down" or it could be a "monday jar" (mold engraver still hung over) will have to check some of mine as I think I have a couple somewhere. better pic of whole jar along with size would help.

Jar is from the 1933-1941 era. There are a lot of variations of "wire side" and "bail (bale) here" as well. While it would be considered an error jar, I don't think the valuation would be significantly higher because of the many variations and Ball didn't seem to be concerned enough to go out of their way to correct them.
