    This is an (iron?) mold for a Bicentennial Ball jar.

    The dimensions for the jar it would make are approximately:

    5.5” tall (it looks like the mold is just to the neck of the jar)
    2.75” mouth
    3.75” diameter

    On one side the jar would say Ball with the little ® under the word. Below the Ball is IDEAL and lower A14

    The other side is an eagle with the words * Bicentennial Celebration * and 1776 * 1976 around the eagle. and MADE IN U.S.A.

    The base has 5 rings each around and bigger than the next with A14 and 752

    The mold is in 3 pieces and it looks like at least one more piece would be bolted to the top of the 2 side pieces.

    It is very heavy. I would guess at least 40lbs.

    I just wondering about the items rarity and any history associated with it.

    Thanks
