The community might be interested in seeing this lid that I recently spotted on a common midget. The Porcelain Lined lids are hard enough to find in the standard mouth size. The midget lids (almost) never show up. For those who have a copy of the Fruit Jar Annual 2012/2013 this is the type three lid. There are patent dates on the top and the liner is unmarked.

Man, lids like that are SO important. I go into antique shops and such and look at lids on all those overpriced green / blue Ball Perfect Mason's just hoping to find an unusual lid like this one to pass along to someone with a "Topless" jar.

I have always had very good luck at finding good jars and bottles. It does seem to run in streaks. If the luck really gets going, I may even find a jar to put this lid on. Too bad the luck dose not seem to work anywhere else. George
