Circa 1900-1906 by the Greenfield Fruit Jar Co., Greenfield IN. Value $8-10 in quart, $10-15 in HG or pint. The line under Mason is referred to as a shepherd's crook.

Thanks for the info jarsnstuff ! I knew it was older than some of mine from the 40's - 60's, but no way to tell for sure. The fact that it cut me while handling it was a hint. It was from a house that hasn't been lived in during my lifetime, but playmates of my Dad lived there.

The colour is the first indicator on the jar being older, and it's a ground top that's your second sign that it's older!
