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.
