    RE: jumbo peanutbutter

    judu, If your jar is a 1 lb jar, as it appears to be, it is one of the more common one's listed at $4-$6 in the Red Book #10. That is without the lid. All the others are higher in price. Maybe you can locate some of the tappered one's and smaller one's. I recently got 3 out of one pit so you should be able to find more. I'm trying to find out what my 4 1/4 oz one is worth, because it is the only one I have, not listed in the book. Good luck on your return dig[:)] Marvin

    RE: jumbo peanutbutter

    I just got my Red Book in the mail last week. It's a great book on jar price's. It cost $40 and is well worth it. It has a site REDBOOKJARS.COM. You should be able to order one from there. Good luck digging, Marvin

    You will also notice that some of the Elephants are young ones and older ones---the tusks are different-----as are the faces[;)]. Hope you find lots of them---Fred.

    RE: jumbo peanutbutter

    If you try to collect all the minor variances you will need a museum to keep them in. I wouldn't even want to guess at the number. I still have several different Jumbo jars but nothing like I used to.
