Genuine McCoy Cookie Jars

I've always believed that a person can never have too many McCoy cookie jars...

... especially when they come in so many different characters, and colors!

Note the difference on the lid of these two jars.  There is an inverted V section in the middle of the lid that lifts off. 

It's very hard to locate this jar/lid.

Quita-tip:

To check the structural integrity of a large piece of McCoy, I place it upside down over my hand and with my other hand, I tap it lightly with two fingers. If there are no cracks in the pottery, it will ring 'clear' and almost melodic with a continued ringing....

If there is even a hairline crack, you will get a 'thump'. For a smaller piece of pottery you can simply hold it in the palm of your hand, tapping it with a pencil or your finger for the same effect.

I am proud to show some of my cookie jar shelves:
