    It has many air bubbles, a side seam, a triangle and 17 on bottom, and only says Masons Patent Nov 30 1858 on front. It's a wax top, and has no other symbols or marks ..

      Fruit jars with this embossing were made for about 60 years, by many different glass houses. Up until about 1900 (give or take a bit, depending on maker) they were made by hand & have a ground lip & after that with a smooth lip, indicating machine made jars. This jar takes a zinc screw lid, so it's not a "wax top". This one looks to be a ground lip, guessing 1870s-1890s.
