Here are a few on ebay, but they are difficult to find. If anyone knows where to find these, please share. Or maybe if they hear from enough people, the jar manufacturers will start producing them. Thanks.
I am curious... are these just collector's items, or is there a special advantage to using these glass lids? I don't immediately see the purpose, especially given that you can't use them with the normal Ball hardware (rings). The eBay seller to whom you linked didn't explain.
Weck makes jars with the glass lid/ rubber gasket combo, but they're pretty expensive (at least, outside of Europe). The nice thing about the glass lids is they don't rust and nothing can leech out of them (though really, your food shouldn't be in contact with the lid anyway, but for the purpose of argument). I've never tried them myself, but I think the Weck jars are easier to open than Tattler lids (the reusable plastic ones) because there's a pull-tab on the rubber gasket to loosen the seal. I'd imagine that shortens the life of the gasket, though.

i have found some silicone gaskets at michaels before. the old rubber seals were the best but cant seem to find them anymore. (over a period of use, they dry rot). i have found on amazon too.
the old jars with glass lids are hard to find too !! i inherited several from an aunt who canned pickles. they are huge !! great for storing oats and flours !!

Built one of these for my kids dorm room. It worked pretty good for a small space and a few hours of relief and a nap. You can sub a small fan that runs off a solar cell in for the plug in electric one shown in video. Happy Nappies ya'll
