Lot 12). Mammy Peanuts Store Tin

$4,000.00
(Final Bid)

Mammy Peanuts Store Tin: 9.75 x 8-1/8″ (dia.) extremely rare and desirable early 10 lb. tin litho store tin for “Mammy” brand salted peanuts (Murray-Roll Co., Pittsburgh, PA) featuring wonderful image of Co.’s trademark black mammy. A clean, bright and very attractive example that displays nicely (as a strong C. 8/+), w/ minor soiling and wear, including slight denting at bottom edge on backside. Lid looks natural on piece but is slightly too small to fit snugly and is probably not original to piece and there is a 1-1/4″ long area of fine oxidized holes at bottom underside edge of base (Note: we sold a choice C. 8.5 example of this tin several years ago for almost $7,500). Min. bid $150.
