I have a planter peanut dish with three round at each end

Customer Question

I have a planter peanut dish with three round at each end and a square dish in middle with planter man, very good shape
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: I am not sure but looks like the 40s I do have a photo if you like.
JA: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: Not that I can think of at this point but the style of the graphics will date it for sure, would you like a photo?

This is a vintage Mr. Peanut snack set with tray, bowls and Mr. Peanut

that dates to 1962 to 1980 when the character of Mr. Peanut was

in this form. The value of this set is $60 to $75 retail.

I will add a chart of the drawn character to show how he changed over the years.

Your version with the simplified squinting eye is post 1962.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one, it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
