Help with Jewel Jar, Gem Jar and Crown Jars

Hi everyone, if any of you could help me date this Jewel Jar and give me an idea of its value, that would be great. I picked it up for less than $1 at a thrift store. I'm not sure if it has the proper glass insert.

    This is the "Improved Gem Jar" Made in Canada. I do not have the lid.

    This the Imperial Pint Crown Jar. This one looks like it's never been used.

    All the jars you pictured do not look overly valuable to me. I am no jar expert, but see alot of those types of jars in my travels. The Jewel look like the best jar to me, but they are only worth about 5 bucks as well. The Crowns are fairly new, and do not have any odd colours so retain no big value either.

    Thank you for the response, Kyle. The Jewel jar is my favourite. I've seen quite a few Crown jars, so you're probably right. I have a green Lynchburg insulator. Do you know anything about those?

    The jewel jar is # 1327 in the red book 9 listed at 10-15 however the lid does not look original. The improved gem looks like # 1094 at 2-3 but cant tell for sure. The crown imperial pts can be good but I have to do some more looking later.

    Kristin- I'm not too familiar with insulators, but maybe you could find yours here, and then maybe the insulator people could help you.  -Julie                    P.S   If you find it, maybe you could start a new post with lynchburg insulator in the title.  Hope this helps.
