Ball jar collectors look for closure types, embossing script styles and patent types to date and find the most valuable collectibles. The script used to emboss the jars is highly datable as it changed over time. The earliest canning jars had wax-sealed lids. It was a simple metal cap sealed into a groove in the bottle rim with wax. This type of canning jar typically dates from circa to , except machine-made "Ball Standard" jars with wax-sealed closures were made from to John Mason patented his famous screw-thread closure in , and jars with screw threaded rims are referred to as Mason jars.
Mason jars are still made today, and collectors need to research patent dates and manufacturers embossed on their jars to date them. One very collectible jar is the "Ball Perfect Mason" made from to Jars with lightning closure use a metal bail that seats into a groove on the glass lid to seal the jar. These were common from the s into the 20th Century. Manufacturers, like Ball, experimented with other types of closures that did not achieve widespread popularity.
These included cam lever lids, thumbscrew stopper lids, and cap-and-spring lids. One rare example is the "Ball PatApdFor" from To answer that, compare the logo of your jar to those on this chart: from Minnetrista Gathering Place. You can also use other identifying marks to help date your jar! So, will you be lucky enough to snag one of these vintage Ball jars during the next Antique Candle Restock?
