Someone was inquiring about the X  Y and Z marks usually on the bottom of the
cookie jars.
The McCoy Cookie Jar book gives this explanation.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF MCcOY COOKIE JARS THJAT HAVE ONLY A PLAIN BOTTOM-NO
MARK. HOWEVER THEY IN REALITY DO HAVE A MARK OF IDENTIFICATION. THEY ARE
REFERED TO AS  A  'X'  'Y'  AND 'Z.'

'X' BOTTOM-HAS THREE CREAM COLORED BARS ACROSS THE BOTTOM.  CREAM-COLORED
AREAS ARE WHAT TO LOOK FOR. 

'Y' BOTTOM-HAS TWO BARS ACROSS THE BOTTOM.  BARS SIMILAR TO THE ONES AT EACH
END ARE WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.

'Z' BOTTOM-ONLY A SEAM IN THE MOLD SHOWS.  THE SEAM MAY BE A STRAIGHT LINE OR
THREE LINES MEETING.

Hope this helps all some.
