METAL BAND - This was advertised online as a railroad cargo strap or seal. It is about an 8" long strip of metal on which the words Planter's Peanuts (note the incorrect apostrophe) and the number "62100" are stamped. Cargo seals are still in use today, in basically this same length and style (www.seals.com).

 

CHICAGO CUBS BATTING HELMET - This is a standard blue Chicago Cubs batting helmet, but Mr. Peanut and "Planters" is on the back. Presumably a game day giveaway. The plastic strap adjuster inside the helmet is dated 1969, although the Mr. Peanut logo seems older.

 

BEACH UMBRELLA - Promotional photo of a Mr. Peanut 75th Birthday beach umbrella with the 75th birthday logo on it, along with other items.

GLASSINE BAG - Common 1920's era bag, but this one is Canadian and has the words "Packed expressly for Canada Railway News" on the front. Thanks to Peanut Pal Tony Augustine for pointing this one out to me,

 

PUB NUTS CAN - Clever Canadian 500 gram container in the shape of a beer keg. Held Pub Nuts. 1990's?

 

 APRON - Black apron with embroidered image of Mr. Peanut from the Grove store, which Planters partnered with in around 2000 or so. The stores were mainly located in airports, and sold nuts, dried fruits, candies, etc. in bulk.
