Thread: Aqua Crown Jars

    Aqua Crown Jars

    I recently found three aqua Crown jars, each a bit different than what I'm used to finding.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    P.S. I've ordered the Red Book, but a few weeks from getting it!! : )

    They are undated and all have nice bubbling.
    All measuring approximately 6.5" high.

    The first one in the photo is IMPROVED CROWN with a 6X underneath the crown.
    The second one has a + under the crown.
    The third has D6 under the crown.

    Thank you for any info!!

    Crown jars make my head hurt as there are so many variations! the first one looks like a #697 and fairly common but would have to see the tops of the jars. It looks like 2 quarts and 1 pint in center? the center one looks like a # 686 but again hard to nail down without counting bumps and seeing whole thing. Discovery is part of the fun collecting jars! Welcome and good luck.

    Thank you for your reply!
    I am definitely learning that Crown Jars are a headache! I just love them though lol
    Is there any other recommended literature for learning other than the Red Book? Or will it cover the Crowns thoroughly?
    Thank you again!

    I don't know of any that cover all variations of the crown jars but the Red Book is one of the most complete, There are a couple of jar references that will help but I cant afford them all! The standard Fruit jar reference is one of them.
