What you pictured is not a Lightning jar...with respect to value, I think pretty minimal honestly. I had one I filled with seashells and it looks pretty cool so maybe you can find someone who wants to do something like that. The C-28 "Lightning" mold you have pictured on the computer screen is a 1/2 gallon Lightning closure jar, not a 5 gallon screwtop jar like photographed.
