Thanks for that info. We knew about it being Lamont from Trenton, but there is some question about the value. The ghosting behind the “jam” is where it used to say “gem” and we haven’t been able to find whether that makes it older/rarer/more or less valuable.
Need to get my hands on a copy of the red book but it’s hard to come by.
The "Improved Gem" jars are very rare and are worth about 4 times as much as the "Improved Jam" jars with the ghosted Gem behind Jam. I believe all of the "Improved Jam" jars have that ghosting. Regardless, its a great jar...there are a number of very rare and desirable Nova Scotia jars.
Ah ok makes perfect sense . Thanks again. We have some nice Ball and Crown jars as well.
The area where we found this still has a lot more to uncover so I’ll likely post it if we come across some other good finds.
