No. 72 Pat. in US. Dec. 22, 1903 July 17, 1906 38. This is on the bottom of this jar, read from the inside. I was digging around under my Grandmothers porch in WV when I found this when I was about 15. That was 36 years ago. Anyway, I had asked my Dad about it, and he told me he had used it as a toy when he was a kid playing under there. He was born in 1917. It is my favorite piece of glass I own.

    These are a fairly common trash pit find. Almost every one I have ever found has chips or cracks. Most have base embossing but some do not have any print there. Must have been a brittle glass formula. I think they were for jelly products. An original tin lid for one would be very tough to find and be likely worth much more than the jar to a collector. The value of the jar is likely only a buck or two.

    Thanks for the information JSmed. I used to love digging dumps, but all the ones I used to dig are on posted land now.

    I had forgotten that I had a box of these preserve jars with tin lids found at a country estate auction one time. I decided to do some research on them and found some ID information for the type you describe. I posted some info and pics on my show and tell items.
