Q:         I have a glass quart jar that’s embossed “1776” above the Liberty Bell and “1976” below it. The other side of the jar is embossed “Mason’s.” Is it worth anything?

A:         Canning jars like yours were made by Anchor Hocking of Lancaster, Ohio, to celebrate the 1976 Bicentennial of the United States. The jars are often found today and sell for $5 to $10.

I have several cases of these jars. How would I find someone who would be interested in purchasing them from me? I have no use for them and they are all just piled up in my basement.
