Of all the jars we have, the blue quarts are in the roughest shape. They have seen a hard life for decades. But since our buyers are trusting me to pick out their jar, I end up washing 10 before I find one that is acceptable. And even then, it's scratched, and maybe a flea bite or two on the rim. Honestly, it drives me crazy!!
My dream is to find an unopened box of blue quarts, all in brand new, never-used condition. That would be a feat, considering Ball stopped making them in 1937. But I can dream, can't I?
