Hi, I am new here. I've been finding a lot of old bottles lately in my back yard. It backs up to a steep highway wooded embankment in a small town northwest of Nashville, TN. It has collected a lot of bottles and trash from passing motorists over the years and remains relatively undisturbed. I've found garbage bags full of mostly unbroken liquor bottles all stamped with the "federal law forbids..." and lots of other interesting finds. My tiny sloped strip of yard/woods quite literally sparkle from all the broken glass.

But here is one that I think could be a jam or jelly jar by Knox Glass. I looked up the mark (K in a Keystone and J in a Circle) which I read was only made in 1932 before Jackson got their J in a keystone mold. I think the numbers at the bottom are 1011 1/# (not sure of bottom number. It's really difficult to make it out)

Does anyone have any more info on this? Would it have any value since it was only made the one year?

Thanks so much for your time. And stay tuned ... I'm still cleaning up and researching the backlog of the 30 or so most interesting & intact finds.

This what I found on a popular bottle marks site. I didn't see anything shown about a letter J in a circle. My guess is that Knox used their K in a keystone and the J in circle for where it was made on your find (looks like a common pickle jar of the period). I also didn't find any info that this was done only in '32, what it does say is they started using the K in a keystone at all locations beginning approximately in '53 for all locations of their plants. Could be wrong, just going by what I read on their site.

Thanks for your reply! A pickle jar? Cool! This where I read about the J in a circle.
