    Favorite Jar for January 2015

    I'm hoping to revive the "favorite jar" category, I still want to see your favorites. To start out the new year, I'm showing this unembossed, clear, slightly stained, not much to look at half pint jar. What I like about it is that it has a ground lip, a lot of bubbles, and a midget lid fits perfectly - making my set of 3 Mason's Patent jars into a set of 4 - and it's cute. I'm showing it in the company of the other 3 jars so you get an idea of perspective. -Tammy

    Very nice jars Tammy ! I don't have a lot of jars and I guess this is not technically a jar but it is my favorite. Sadly it needs a lid I can't find. Joy minnow trap !

    So I have two Minnow 'traps in NY and no extra lid. Try David Rittenhouse in Indiana. His phone is 765-468-8091 RED M.

    That minnow trap is cool.Here is my pick for the month. It is a clear quart nothing jar embossed Mid West, Canadian Made. What I like about this one is the Maple Leaf lid that came with it. Too bad it has a little chip out of it but this is the 1st one I have ever seen.[attachment=IMG_3416.JPG] [attachment=IMG_3414.JPG] [attachment=IMG_3417.JPG]

    I've never seen one of those Maple Leaf lids before, not on any of the Mid West jars I've seen. I wonder if that's what it originally went to or if it's from something else. Can't think of any more obvious contenders though, I don't know of any jars with maple leafs on them.

    The original Mid West jars came with a glass insert with an M in a circle and the maple leaf insert is listed as a replacement. At least according to the references I have.
