Great display of color. What are those bell shaped ones on the top shelf. - Those are Bicentennial bells made by Kerr in 1976. They share the shelf with the "Dream Series" midget pints made in 1971.

Thanks guys!

Here are my finds from an estate sale thurs, first decent jars found in a long time. A pair of lightning, one ground lip and one smooth. A pair of wan-eta cocoa in two sizes. A p lorillard with the lid but sadly no closer. Also a mcdonald and a small royal I thru in for grins. My wife actually saw these first and alerted me, could not believe someone hadn't grabbed them but they were sitting together high on a shelf. All for 22 bucks.

Great buy! My guess is that the smooth lip Lightning is a repro. Does it have 227 on the base? The lid that goes with it has a kind of textured finish with no actual embossing. Guessing too, it's the one on the left.

Good eye Jars, There is the correct wording on the lid but its very light so yes I would say its a repo (227 on base) and when compared side by side there are minor differences. Glad you noticed it as I didn't think to check. Still a decent buy and was glad to find them!:rolleyes::rolleyes:
