Hi Rhona, I'd say they're collectible if you want to can in them. The exception would be pints with flowers and quarts with various historical sites embossed on the back that were made for the bicentennial and are moderately collectable - worth a couple of bucks apiece. I do quite a bit of home canning and I'm still using those too. -Tammy

hi tammy, thanks for the reply. the jar has fruit embossed on 1 side, the bottom has the #7 UNDER THE WORD BALL and the #62 & D20. i hope i can get the scan to show the embossing. thanks for any information, rhona
