I found this case of Kerr jars at an estate sale. Amazingly I was able to track down a man that worked at the plant while these were made.
Anniversary was 1968. The failed amethyst and a few other attempted colors were mostly the ones used to paint gold colored. Some had little to no color, some of the better but still "ugly" ones were pirated off the line by the Quality Control Manager, my next door neighbor, who gave them to me. This may have been one of those. They were never meant for public consumption. Only a few dozen were termed "failures", most of those got painted gold. I was part of the Fruit Jar Collectors club that was present at the making of these jars but having Ray Gentry, the Q.C.M., as a neighbor was a plus. I got lots of neat stuff from him as well as personal guided tours of the plant rather frequently.

I'm looking for info on the green Jars
