  1. Hello! I would not say I am a jar collector, but I recently purchased the following jar and was wondering if you might shed some light on its history and possible worth:

    Atlantic City

    It is a small clear glass jar with what appears to be the original top and to the left of the name Ackers it has the letter A encircled with a wreath.

    Any information you may be able to provide to me would be much appreciated.



    1. Ackers was a candy store. See picture here:
