Customer Question
I have a "Presto"...

I have a "Presto" supreme,Mason jar made by Illinios Glass Corp but he original Factory lid,seal, & glass cover are missing.It is in excellent condition. Value ??

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have used this jar for canning for 20-30 years,But,My wife & I never did have the factory lid parts.What is it worth ?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

No,not really.I do know what the original lid parts like as I remember those from back in the 1940's,my mother had jars with that kind of lids !The jar is in like new condition,no cracks or chips,& especially no chips on the sealing edge of the Jar.
