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?
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
