View Full Version : Ball Perfect Mason jar...error...

05-10-2004, 10:44 PM
I'm not a collector of jars, so I would like to know if anyone could tell me how rare/common, and how valuable of these jars are. I have 2 Ball Perfect Mason jars with the same error, the word PEPFECT, and both are aqua. They were not blown in the same mold...that tells me that they may be common...true?

Howdy Jughed,
Noticed your post with 0 replies and thought I'd through in my 2 cents worth.
As I understand, blue and aqua ball bottles are more collectable than the clear.I have a few of each. Anything with a mistake from the factory is worth more and is more desirable to the collector.There are alot of web sites for ball bottles. Just do a search.
Good Luck!

I was wondering the same thing. I have an imperfect perfect mason jar also. The words don't line up and the T in perfect is almost invisible. I was wondering how common this was.
