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)

Glass insert says Ball No.10
3 zincs say: Genuine Zinc Cap for Ball Mason Jars
Save your Hero Cross lid for a Hero jar, it'll add $10 or so to the value, more if it has a lug (can't tell for sure in your photos). For the jar you pictured, I'd use a plain unmarked zinc lid.

There are fake mason jars all over eBay on any given day! These are modern jars, made in China or India. They come in many eye-appealing colors. Unscrupulous dealers buy them up cheap then try to sell them as the real thing. Sometimes newbies buy them, pay too much, and get discouraged - sad to say.

If you actually believe what you said in this statement then you need to stop giving advice on bottles to people. There are fakes and reproductions in all categories of bottles.

1970s or 80s ot so the MASON jars were made in a variety of colors and so for decorative uses. They were called the DREAM SERIES. No shame in these modern jars as they are now bringing $40+ for single examples. Who would have known. Could have bought dozens of these back in the day. They were very inexpensive.

Here are 6 of the Dream Series midget pints. I think one should expect to pay $60 - $120 for one.
