    Mason jar

    Definitely recommend looking at Ball Jar page. Post some pics too. (There are clear jars that are rare too)..You can purchase Doug Leybourne's Red Book if you want to look up prices and rarity, but due to variety, you still may need an expert to help with identification. Sent from my E6910...

    What is the procedure to stop bruises and cracks ?

    New dump spot near 1760s house part 1
