Got this bottle out of my yard today it has 4 sides and no damage. Any idea of the age of the jar and the age of the ball lid? Alo what is it worth because I know the lid can be with more than the jars?


Thank you
Tom smith

Nice find. These square Drey Perfect Masons don't seem to be too common. They are RB 843-1 and list for $10-15 in RB 9. That lid is the most common lid there is practically, so in this case, the jar is worth more than the lid. These were made by Ball in the 1930's, I believe. Here is some very interesting information about the Drey jars: http://www.fruitjar.org/Drey.htm
