I have a clear quart Ball jar that has the heavily footed a but no underline and perfect mason is offset. Has anyone seen one like this before. Just curious as to the date of it.

I've attached a Ball logo chart which I think is far superior to the one listed above, made by the late Bob Clay. The offset Perfect Mason jars were a result of converting the Ball Mason molds to include the word "Perfect". "Perfect" was inserted between "Ball" and "Mason" wherever it fit. Logo #11 on the attached chart, generally considered to be fairly early in that time range. Same thing, missing the underline, is logo #12.

Your jar isn't one converted from a Ball mason but altered from the DREY PERFECT MASON after Ball bought the company. One of the few Dropped A non underscore jars to find. Look close at your embossing you should see ghosting of the DREY and maybe the long tailor the Y under Ball.

Nickolas is correct, converted Drey mold
