For the people who started collecting Mccoy pottery. I have found that the
higher priced cookie jars and other pottery items, are the ones that has
been repo.
I would feel that if I paid 20.00 or less (at a yard sale) for a mccoy
cookie jar it would be a very good buy. I would hope that you would buy it
because you liked it with not having to spend much money. I know there is a
list of cookie jars that has been repo. I found it in "Collector's
encyclopedia of Cookie jars" book II. Page 332.
e-mail me if you don't have the list. I will try to send you a copy. I hope
that I have helped some of the new Mccoy collectors out there. It is alot of
fun. Sheldon
