Hello all, I have found a 1 quart, Square 'G' Mason, on the surface of one of the dumps I am working. Any info as to date, rarity, etc. would be greatly welcome [8|]. THANKS!

Thanks Woody, I have found well over a hundred mason jars in 4 months and this is the first Square 'G'. It's got, "3044" on the bottom. I'm guessing March of 1944?

Hi Gary, According to the Standard Reference, the Square G was made 1940's - 1950's by the Glenshaw Glass Co., Glenshaw PA. This jar isn't really all that easy to find, but there currently isn't a lot of excitement generated over clear WWII era mason jars, which is reflected in the very reasonable pricing. Maybe if you hang on to it for another 20 years or so...... -Tammy

Re: RE: Square 'G' Mason???

I myself have two quart size jars, and haven't had much luck in finding a value on them. With only two, these might stay in my collection; I say collection, 'cause I am growing rather fond of these jars(ball, AH, presto, brockway, etc) and not wanting to part with them, lol! Great site, learning more every day!

This is kinda why I was opposed to the post forever idea. After 10 years they get revived and the original poster is long gone. I think it's just better to start a new thread.

Or we can pirate the thread. There are a few old ones that were so humorous I nearly posted to let others see the hilariousness, but I usually just hit "Helpful" on stuff instead of reviving posts ended before I got into middle school.I'm now in college. LOL. I hit helpful to show my amusement to the writers. ???????????????•??•??????????

So while I am here, I now have one of the Solar Lighted Jar Lids - My daughter bought for me by going to Google. Now I am thinking of three more of them to hang on my Bottle Tree in Florida, when we get back there. RED Matthews

Tammy it has been 15 years since you have posted about this Square G Mason jar. Do you still see these jars being $4-8? These jars are still a world war 2 era item however they are just clear. I stumbled upon roughly a hundred of these at an estate clean out.
