Found near a creek, about 5' down. Still had the original top (didn't make it), lots of bubbles, only "THE mason" and a 2 on the bottom.

Still needs proper cleaning, but it is perfect!

The Standard Reference is pretty much in agreement with the Fruit Jar Works, listing dates 1906-1909 by the same manufacturer. I often see these with very light embossing, so the nice embossing on yours is a good thing. Ball took over the Mason Fruit Jar Co. in 1909 and added "Ball" above "Mason"
