Trade Mark Lightnings – You Think I Need This Color?
Randy Taylor (Chico, California) has this killer Trade Mark Lightning quart fruit jar that that I just have to have. He had it on his table again at the 49er Historical Bottle Club and Show this year in Auburn, California.
Do you think it is a color that might fit in with my group! Wow. Greg Spurgeon had a similar jar at Baltimore. I understand that there are no matching tops for this rare color variant. Hopefully it will still be around when I strike oil or something.

Fit? Absolutely! I didn’t check the price but did ogle the jar in passing. Too busy at my table to wander as much as I’d liked to have. Shows are as much social events as selling and trading venues.
