[&:] My dad has recently started digging and has found himself quite the collection of jars. He has now started shopping on Ebay for them. He is trying to find any information that he can on what lids go with what jars and since he doesn't have a computer he has asked me for help. I have found a few books but he really doesn't want to pay $50 + for a book that might not have the info that he wants. Does anyone know what book or books he could purchase to get this info or if there are any web sites that might tell me??? Thanks Amy

It has good illustrations and descriptions of all fruit jars.
Thousands of jars and variations.
I find the desciptions to be of more value than the illustrations.
