Does anyone know what these lids may go to ? The first one is embossed PATENTED MAY 25TH 1886, Measures two and seven eighths inches across the bottom from outside to outside. Looks like a fruit jar lid to me, but to what kind of a jar I have no idea.
This lid is embossed COLUMBIA PATENTED DEC 29TH 1886. No inside threads on the inside of the lid. Measures two and a quarter inches in diameter outside to outside. The embossing was easier to display backward as for being able to see it. I have no idea at all what this small lid goes to.
And last, this lid is embossed WARM CAP SLIGHTLY TO SEAL OR UNSEAL - PAT'D OCT 24 1905. Lid measures three and a quarter inches in diameter across the bottom from outside to outside. I would assume this lid also goes to a fruit jar of some kind.
Thanks Clinton, the Columbia is not a fruit jar though is it ? Seems quite small if it is. I have had these lids in a coffee can for years , knocked the blasted things off the shelf onto the floor this afternoon, and broke almost everything in it except for these lids and a few other glass items.
Hey guys,Spence I'm not sure about the clear lid. It should fit a flaccuss but I think the dates are off.LC the columbia lid may be from the pint.Don't know for sure fellows just some guesses Talk to you soon.Clinton
