Q: This Mr. Peanut figure was found in the back room of an old general store in southern Missouri. The figure is 27 inches tall and weighs 12 pounds. The base is very thick heavy wood, and the hat and cane also appear to be wood. The body is molded plastic or some kind of composite. It sounds hollow when you knock on it. There’s no maker’s mark on it. I am a huge collector of Mr. Peanut memorabilia and wonder about its purpose, age and value.
