Hi all, I dug up this odd jar lid the other day and wondered if anyone can identify what it is off of. It is the standard size of a regular mason jar lid but has a square recess in the center, presumably for some kind of sealing apparatus. any info would be appreciated.

IS there some VERY FAINT lettering on the lid? I almost think I see something. Maybe just an optical illusion.

No lettering but it does have an amber swirl through it.

This lid was from a fruit or canning jar that used a yolk & clamp style closure. I've looked at a bunch of different ones but haven't found one with a square indent. Shame you didnt find the jar!

Thanks for the info. I know some jars with odd closure mechanisms can be quite rare and valuable. I figured someone out there might have the jar to missing the lid, but finding that person would be impossible without knowing what the lid was for. I'm still digging that area so who knows, maybe the jar will turn up.

This goes to The Valve Jar. It took a thick, spiral shaped wire closure. Not a rare lid, but not common either.
