    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, 5 years ago
      My guess is late 60's into the 70's, but again just a guess

      Thanks again Kerry, that seems pretty likely.

      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, 5 years 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.

      Mr. Peanut looks adorable!

      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.
