HALF GALLON SIZED

WITH STRANGE BASE EMBOSSING
Hello Everyone! You are looking at a VERY STRANGE (to me) - half gallon sized, *flat* shoulder seal fruit jar with a thick ground mouth (with some heavy flake chipping, covered by the lid)... in a nice RICH SCA COLOR :-)! It is the jar on the left in the comparison picture, next to a normal looking shoulder seal Atlas Mason jar. It is jar #1789 in the Red Book #9, BUT IS NOT listed in this SCA color - and is a SELDOMLY SEEN jar with this particular embossing (no 'S)... PLUS this one has an *odd* squarish shape with a unusually flat shoulder!
The jar is VERY STRONGLY embossed with, "MASON" (with NO *'S*) which is arched over "PATENT" over "NOV. 30TH" (the TH is underlined) over "1858"... please see the pictures! The base of the jar shows some normal signs of wear (that is to be expected on a old Mason's jar such as this) - and is embossed with this VERY STRANGE looking number/symbol?? with a period after it... again please see the pictures! This jar looks GREAT in a sunny window (and should get darker with more exposure to the suns rays) - and would make a STUNNING addition to anyones collection... just take a look for yourself! It will come with a old zinc lid for a closure that is embossed with "GENUINE BOYD CAP ~ FOR MASON JARS" along its outside edge... with a picture of the *Sun, Moon & Stars* in its center (that is weak, but readable & has a few holes in it as seen), and that also has a porcelain insert (that is unmarked and undamaged) - & that is ready for you to ADMIRE & PROUDLY display!
As for the jars condition... other than the already mentioned flakes on its thick ground mouth, t are a few scratch/scuff/rub marks (that are to be expected on any used canning jar of age) - THAT'S IT! No other chips or cracks noted - and it is CLEAN to boot! So we have a UNLISTED COLOR, STRANGE SQUARED FLAT SHOULDER, NO *'S* MASON JAR... WITH AN ODD BASE EMBOSSING TOO! Now you have to admit - that's a jar that you don't see everyday! So why wait... add it to your collection today! Thanks for looking and Happy Bidding!!
