the Ball jars are considered common and are valued at less than 5 bucks. The pint squat Atlas on the other hand is a nice jar. good color too! Book lists them at 50 denaros plus if it's olive, which it looks like to me.

BALL(underscore) script dropped a MASONS(no apostrophe) PATENT 1858 ground lip shoulder seal 4 lines pt. aqua. Unlisted size and jar as far as i can tell. Closest listing is RB #255. Any thoughts?
RB 255 lists as a smooth lip and a missing 3rd L, so I think that's the logo used after 1896. Yours is ground lip with the pre-1896 logo. I think yours is closer to RB 253 but missing the apostrophe. You can always send a note to Doug Leybourne

good call! I actually have to contact him on a couple more jars I found. I've been so busy the last couple of years I haven't been able to do any research. do you still collect the boxes of jar seals? Don't see them in the antique stores anymore . Thanks

I do still collect jar rings boxes, but with over 800 different ones in my collection, finding one I don't already have isn't easy. I still have the website at www.fruitjarrings.com which lists not only jar rings but a lot of other go-withs as well.
