    RE: What do these lids go to ?

    COLUMBIA PATENTED DEC 29TH 1886
    Can you check that year. RB8 has 1896 or an 1898 error. Is 1886 in RB9?

    RE: What do these lids go to ?

    Okay guys, you're all right about the Globe lid. Somebody's always looking for a lid to a Globe jar. But, don't quit your day job 'cuz a complete aqua Globe goes for about $25. Next, the Columbia lid. It's not all that rare in amber since it was commonly used on gauze jars. See Redbook #1340 - that jar complete goes for about $25 too. The last lid, you should be so lucky as to get it to fit on a Flaccus jar, it won't. Nor will it fit a Crystal jar - try a Simplex lid for that one. What does it fit? Look up Redbook 2315 or 2769. It goes to an unmarked jar with very small threads. Many of those jars get pitched 'cuz nobody knows what it is. Therefore, you find those lids all over the place and never find the jar that it goes to. It's probably the most worthless of the bunch 'cuz jar collectors always have one or two of them floating around in their miscellaneous lids box. -Tammy

    Hello Eric, I looked at the lid again. When held one way it looks to be 1886, if I shift the lid at a different angle, it looks like it is 1896. I am going to lean more toward 1896, and my apologies for the error, Lou
