    I like it when I find a $10 jar and end up finding out I can add another figure to its value.

    I'm not a jar collector. In fact, if it's clear, aqua, or a screw-top (Masons/Ball, mostly) I entirely avoid it in 99% of cases. Even Ball and Mason in tints like a light green tint, as it's the true colour that has true desirability.

    Sometimes, though, things scream to me, Good Deal.

    This jar happens to fall into a color between Screaming Yellow and Honey-- both colours in the bottle world. This is true colour, even if on the light side. It even has a character bubble-- I love big bubbles in glass. The bigger, the better, so long as it isn't broken or in danger of fracture.

    Newest patent on lid is 1882.
    Putnam, the mark on the bottom, was used by Lyndeborough Glass Company of South Lyndeboro, New Hampshire, from 1866-1886.

    As such, the jar is circa 1882-1886.

      looks like a great find to me who know's nothing about glass items, What do you think the "Lightning" stands for? moonshine? Cocaine?
      I have a small 1880s-1890s Brewsters cobalt blue glass bottle that reads "Medicated Electricity' on the bottom I was thinking Cocaine? any thoughts?

      I think by Lightning it means how quickly you can seal it. I'm not a jar expert, but some jars had wax (and later rubber) seals that were a bit difficult, and then there were hundreds of closure types. Some closures you had to screw down, which took time and hand muscle. Others were just too difficult to make sense. This closure is quick and simple.
      Show me your bottle. Sometimes the shape tells me everything.

      I was thinking where it might be as I was writing I'll likely be able to find it and get a pic
