Pint Mason, Block Print, Shoulder not Square or Rounded, Whittled and a nice Swirl, Top looks ground to me,Side seams extend to top through the threads, But the bottom marks look new to me (But I'm a beginner)

nice jar, kind of hard to tell from the photos but looks like a # 1784 in the Red Book.

It's real. No doubt. Some of the lips look like that. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I suspect that is from use. I don't know if machines ever made them like that, and they would make a bad seal. It's definitely made in a machine - I would suspect 1890-1920. Not sure if that text is specific to a time period. Can't ID from just the "C/3" on the base. The dot to the left is possibly a vent hole for the mould.

No doubt the lid is real. The jar may/may not be another matter. In any case, for a newbie, you have a good eye, Dumpicker. Keep collecting!
