Green jar no markings

My neighbor ask if I could find out anything about 4 old jars he found. I found out the 3 ball mason jars are from the 1910-1923 era. But I have not had any luck with the green one. The only mark is a thin curved line on the bottom and I believe it was blown. I would appreciate it if someone can help me with that one, and he would like to know if they are worth anything. Thank you for your help.

My husband used to collect these years ago and did a ton of research on them. He says it is not any type of Ball jar to his knowledge. He has never seen one without the name on it...unless they made it for another company. It could be a random run of the mill cool green jar. But he says not a Ball. Would be interesting to know where they came from!

It's gotten me really courious because I haven't been able to find out anything about it. He found them here in Colorado on one of his job sites

Yes it would be cool to know who made it. I wondwr if Ball made jars for other companies also.

I'm sure they did but how to find out? You wouldn't have any idea how much I can tell him the other 3 might be worth with the zinc or porcelain lids they all have them.

He says the 3 clear ones are older, as they are round necked compared to square necked. If you can prove the dates on them and find a collector, it is really what they are willing to pay and it varies all over. We have seen them go for $10-30 each but usually not that high for the clear ones. The curved line on the green one is just where they cut it off when blowing it. Still interesting that it has no marking. We have dozens of them and they all have something. The clear Ball ones, even though they are old, I would guess you won't get over $20 for each. Green ones for aure but not the clear. Wish I could be more help!
