Some jars have embossing that is unusually faint ( for instance, just one or two letters within a word) and this can sometimes be due to accumulated debris partially filling the engraving of the lettering on the mold itself at the time of making, or perhaps some other reason.

Later versions (after circa 1936) were made in clear glass, and some (usually from the 1950s) in brown amber.
