Can anyone tell me if this Bicentennial Celebration (1776-1976) jar is worth anything? Thanks.

The pint and quart will get you a couple of bucks apiece. The half gallon goes a bit higher - about $8-$10, and the half pint is about $15. Please be aware there are some reproductions of this jar out there. Easiest way to spot the repros is "Not for home canning" embossed along a side heel. The color is a little brighter blue as well. I've seen quite a few of those repros being passed off as bicentennials on ebay. (look for a slot in the glass boss where the wire fits into the jar and a flat ridge around the outside edge of the lid) Since the "real thing" is not all that expensive, don't buy the repros!!
