I went digging today and found this ball jar but it is different then most from this era that I find (1910-1923). Its like the top of the bottle just cuts off the bottom part to early. I also couldnt find one with the perfect mason part off to the side on one from the 10s. Any info would be great, im just trying to identify why its so different. Thanks :D

When Ball decided to add the word "Perfect" to "Ball Mason" jars, they saw no reason to throw away all the old molds. So, they just squeezed in the word "Perfect" wherever if fit. There are several variations of where "Perfect" was inserted, since molds varied quite a bit. Only when new molds were cut did they center "Perfect Mason" under "Ball".

Maybe this was a transition from a shoulder seal to a bead seal. What is on the bottom? That can help identify where it was made or on what machine..
