Have a clear quart canning jar with a ground lip. Just says "CONSERVE JAR" on the front. Probably not worth much, just wondered who made them and about what dates. Guessing maybe WW2 era when everyone was into canning food etc. Thanks

Hi Woody,
Thanks for the info on the CONSERVE JAR. I sort of thought it was older than WW2 as it does have a ground lip. I don't really collect canning jars but take them if they seem unusual and are in good shape. That one had been sitting in a box in my shed for a couple years. One of theses days I suppose I gotta get a red book too. Thanks again.

It's a good reference book, Cliff.
