GLASS JAR WITH LABEL - Variant 1920's Peanut Butter jar. This item is more commonly seen as a 10 oz. round drinking glass style jar, while this version is more vertical and with a neck. The label also says "Planters Nut and Chocolate Co. USA" in red letters, but "Canada", "England" and "Label made in USA" in black letters beneath this. No lid. Jar measures 6" tall, 3" at base and 2-3/8" at neck. From William Morford's Spring 2017 internet auction.


WATCH - The watch face says "Planters Company", with a rotating Mr. Peanut on the second hand. The back is engraved "Planters Suffolk, VA 2 Million Hours 1998".

CLOCK - Small stand up plastic desk clock in the shape of a golf ball. 2-3/4" tall, 3" wide and 3/4" deep. Quartz clock by Alcraft. 1960's-70's?

TRUCK - Special Edition made by Hot Wheels Company to commemorate the Oakland Athletics' 2000 American League West Division Championship.

JACKET - Black leather bomber jacket with embroidered Mr. Peanut on the left breast pocket. The label is from Burk's Bay Clothing Company, a well-known maker of leather apparel for large corporations.

 

PAPER INSERT - This was found in a mailing box of 1940 World's Fair tin dishes. It says "Here are your peanut dishes", and invites the recipient to visit the Planters exhibits at the New York World's Fair and Golden Gate Exposition in San Francisco. Dated 4-3-40.

PATCH - I believe this to be a variation of the patch discussed on page 79 of Mark Woodson's 1992 book, which he describes as "oval shaped and measures 4" tall and 3" wide and is bordered in black then red with Planters Peanuts in gold within the red. The center is white with a black and gold Mr. Peanut embroidered in the center. This patch was worn by the individual who was designated as the "official" Mr. Peanut for a formal occasion. The individual would wear the parade mask earlier in the day. Later in the evening this person would dress up in a very elaborate tuxedo complete with top hat, spats, etc., and then would have this patch pinned to his jacket to officially designate him as Mr. Peanut. Other than "Planters Peanuts" being in black rather than gold lettering, his description accurately characterizes this patch.
