Interesting older molded Mr. Peanut bank. Maybe '70s or a little older? I'm not really sure about the age. It's exactly 8 1/4" tall. Hope you all enjoy!

    I'll have to ask my older bro and sister because maybe it was theirs not mine - I remember a bank - it would have been in the late 60's.

    Thanks valentino, I appreciate that. I always appreciate more info!
  4. kerry10456 kerry10456, 12 months ago
    My guess is late 60's into the 70's, but again just a guess

    Thanks again Kerry, that seems pretty likely.

    aycockonxion, you are correct about the '70's. here is a yellow one with alarm clock & wristwatch.

    My brother had one just like this, except it was green. Definitely early 70s.

    Do I remember right? Wrappers from Planter Peanuts were sent in w/some $ for this bank?
  13. aycockonxion aycockonxion, 11 months ago
    I wouldn't be surprised, that would make sense. The money just for S&H probably?

    And thanks to gargoylecollector, Trey, and geo26e for the love!

    Loved my Mr. Peanut. I had this one in blue and it would have been late 50s or early 60s. My husband's was red, but then he wasn't my husband then. ;) But it did make it to our house 10 years later. :) Nice find.

    I sent in the wrappers and I think thirty cents in 1958. I also had a tan (peanut color) drinking cup. The bag of peanuts cost five cents so getting something for the wrappers was a big deal. Five cents was big money to a kid back then. Although you could still buy penny candy and gas was eighteen cents a gallon.
