A person group of mouth-blown Mason jars - the "Enhanced Masons" - didn't seal on the shoulder underneath the threaded end. In its place, they sealed to the limited Nearly horizontal edge immediately under the end rim and over the molded threads. Simply click Improved Mason threaded complete to see a close-up of this kind complete with the sealing surface area specifically pointed out.
