Prices Realized: Mr. Peanut Collectibles

Barb Crews

Mr. Peanut is one of my top picks for advertising icons for collectors. Apparently a lot of others agree with me, just take a look at the Mr. Peanut web sites around the Internet or the number of folks who belong to the Mr. Peanut Collectors Club. Planters Peanut Company has been around since 1906, Mr. Peanut since 1916 and both are still going strong 100 years later.!

Mr. Peanut collectibles consist of books, posters, jars, pins, dolls, silverware, banks, watches, jars and salt/pepper sets.

Here are a sampling of prices from completed auctions, online malls, shops and antique shows in my area.
