The solid color McCoy clown rare is indeed a very rare jar. These jars were done in various colors including blue, green, yellow, pink and white. But those production jars were not a solid color as this one is. The jar is green, but when looking at the mark and paper tag, the factory called it slate blue.

Note: Cookie jar expert Red Huston was asked about this jar, "Yes, it's definitely a rare jar and one worth the price paid". He related that three of these jars are known to exist and since six jars were often made in a test run -- the question is are there three more out there? Do you have one?
