Trying to find out some history on this mason jar. The top line reads Michigan, rarity, and value I'm also recieving a green quart (supposed to be the rarest) and blue pint..same as pictured. This one pictured is a blue but doesn't show the color. Thanks and thanks for allowing me to be new to the group. Karl Nichols

Nice jar, there are several variations of the jar with different monograms on the base or unmarked. The color in the picture would be considered clear. Values range from 20 to 150 depending on size, color, embossing etc. This is according to red book 12. the listings are 2172 to 2173-2 in the red book. BTW welcome

Red Book is pretty much the bible these days and certainly is a must-have for anyone collecting fruit jars in a meaningful way.

I would stick with red book 12 as the later additions have eliminated some of the more common jars or so I've been told. One caveat is that jar collecting is addictive and you may end up like some of us with rooms full of jars. :rolleyes:
