Mason jars

I started a post on another thread but since have realized that i have more jars than bottles so I will look for a little help here. To make it short I inherited my grandmothers house about 10 years ago and have kinda just left everything alone. Recently pulled down some old bottles from a pantry to look up their value. As i was doing this i noticed a lot of mason type fruit jars for sale and remembered that there was about 20 boxes of them in one of the barns outside. So i go and scam through them today and as I came across a new one i put aside and brought it inside. I think I would like to get rid of these and would like to ask the experts here if any of these are valuable and what would be the best way to sell the whole lot as one. Here are some examples of what I have, some I have dozens of and some there are only one or two that I have seen so far. All help is appreciated.....

Hundreds of jars total,, some are these that i listed and some are unmarked completely, some of the unmarked look old and some not so old,, half of those could be Mayonase jars, i have no idea


Well now that I have typed that and set each one on the floor and away from the flourecent lights it looks like the ones i called blue may be green, i have no idea, i will look at them in the sunlight tomorrow. Thanks

    I have a clear Lamb mason jar with a glass and metal lid. The only mark on the bottom is a "L".  I thought it would be made by Lamb Glass Company but the "L" appears to be for Latchford Glass Company. I'm not sure if the lid is the original but it is white glass. The inside of the lid says "White Crown Vacuum Mason Jar Cap" and "Pat-11-22" "1910". There is also an upside down "1" above the pat. number. Any information on this would be appreciated.

    Near the bottom of the jar is also the number 12.

    The LAMB MASON took a LAMB insert, and it would be worth as much as the jar is, I once sold a complete THE LAMB on ebay and had several people contact me to see if I had any more inserts-the WHITE CROWN insert goes to a WHITE CROWN MASON- $8-12 for pt/qt- The LAMB- books for $1-3 complete. JB

    Would the White Crown mason be the same as a Crown mason? I have a large one that says Crown Mason. Where the lid screws down there is the number 20.
