Ball Mason Jars 100 years of American Heritage

These are the new reproduction anniversary Ball Perfect Mason Jars. 1913 - 1915 100 years of American Heritage. Made in the U.S.A. embossed on the back of the jar.
For one year, Ball jars will be manufacturing the collector pints. Sometime in 2014 they will release a American Heritage Quart jar for one year only.
Made in America, these jars are beautiful for floral arrangements and mason jar crafts. I have a Pinterest board  full of ideas here:

I was only able to 12 of the first edition pints, released March 13, 2013 ( 3/13/13 ). I am keeping six and have put six up for sale in my Etsy shop MasonJarDecor.

Here is a photo of the new pint jar beside a vintage jar so you can see the color difference. I just love canning jars old and new.
