Customer Question
I need to know...

I need to know the approximate price of this jar for mailing purposes:

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Mason's Patent Nov. 30th 1858, 1/2 gallon, very dark brown, looks black on the shelf.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Excellent condition, a little chipped around the top edge. I've had it for at least 50 years. My father-in-law bought it from an old lady on his route.
