Ok. I semi-broused old threads on here, but can someone tell me why the Speas Mfg Co. U-SAVIT jars bring so much money? A friend asked about the quart in these pics. Seems as though the gallons are best. RB10 lists them at $75-100. The quarts can be had on FeeBay from $10-40 or so, but the gallons bring a few hundred?!?! Wonder how many of these we either broke, threw back, or passed up?

Thanks.

I'm not exactly sure what that means but I would guess that fewer gallon jars were made and more were thrown away than reused because of the size. Passed up? No idea.[8|]

I mean that prior to now, I would have probably thrown these things back if I found them. Or I would have smashed them. Or I would not have taken a second look at them at a yard sale or flea mkt.

Yeah,If I saw that at a flea market/antique store I wouldn't give it a second look. Guess I'll start paying more attention to clear jars now. Are they ground lip or machine made?
