But thew jar has been...
Remanufactured: A properly rebuilt automotive part. The item has been completely disassembled, cleaned and examined for wear and breakage. Worn out, missing or non-functioning components have been replaced with new or rebuilt components. It is the functional equivalent of a new part and is virtually indistinguishable from a new part.
I must remember how much work goes into the job next time I wash something. Perhaps he skipped the maths lecture where decimal points were explained :-?

These 59 Mini glass washer bottles are the Holy Grail for 59/early 60 Mini owners.
My daughter has a 59 Mini and I found a BMC boxed jar for her several years ago. I believe the current going rate is around £500 . On this one on ebay it is the top that is a remanufactured item.

In 1959 you could purchase the complete Mini for less!

Have you seen what really early '59 Minis fetch now ? Even basket cases are fetching tens of thousands.Nearly as much as a genuine Cooper S.
If only my '53 Travellers were worth as much.
