Hello Judu , your jar is pretty common , but I have always liked the Jumbos , they are from Cincinnati , and I have always been attracted to them . I had a good many of them for some time till I decided to get rid of most of them . There are a dozen or so different slogans on the bottoms of the one pound jars , can not think of all of them off hand . There are a good many shapes and sizes of them , and some of them are worth a good bit of money . Those lids are sure hard to come by though ! . My Misses has a couple of them in the kitchen as well .

HEY DAN. VERY NICE, JUMBOS ARE COMMON, BUT WILL ALWAYS BE DESIRABLE, YOURS LOOKS TO BE AN EARLIER VERSION ,DOES IT HAVE A PLACE ON THE BACK FOR A LABLE? OR IS IT SOLID STRIPES?, I ALWAYS KEEP EM, AND WHEN THE WIFE STARTS LIKING YOUR FINDS THATS EVEN BETTER! MIKE

I believe the one pound jars with the slogans on the bottom are from the fifties and possibly the forties , I am just guessing though . I am pretty sure the ones from the sixties did not have the slogans on the bottoms .

They are from the very late 20s thru 30s and are worth about $10 in that size. They come with 11 different sayings if I remember correctly and there is an Ice blue one that is super rare. Jumbo Peanut Butter came in sizes from 2ozs to a couple of pounds and a lot of different shapes. There are very collectible and where you find one there are usually others.
