This was a christmas gift. I was told that the original jars never came in any color besides clear. Just wondering if its a repro or the real deal. I'll love it either way.

I've only ever seen clear ones.

I have an original Planters Pennent Brand jar, with labels and peanut lid, and it is clear. While not a Planters expert, the color of your jar says to me it is fairly recent in manufacture. Now, if I could just figure out how to use the digital camera, I could even post you a pic of the jar. Someday I will learn....

My dad has a clear one that is real. I thought I could dig out some pics but I can't find them. I'll have to loo later. I know his doesn't have the Peanut Finial.

very nice. it reminds me of the cracker jars that were in the general store near my grandparents house. they had a lance one on one counter and a toms on the other. they're hard to find and cost a pretty penny.

I've been informed by a planters collector that it is indeed a repro. All the original Planters Pennant Peanut jars were clear. Did find out the repro is still around 30 years old. Still a great looking piece.

I first saw these reproes back in the late 70's. They also came in cobalt blue...and perhaps amethyst. One still surfaces from time to time in a shoppe or at the Flea...with some outrageous $$$ amount.
It's attractive, well-made, and "aged" enough to have collector appeal & value and most likely will increase in value much like the repro 1858 jars from the 70s....
Whatever you do - take care of that lid. It's about half the value on older jars, and the jars are hard to sell without a lid or, with a damaged lid.

I've got one of the blue jars - thanks for the original/repro info. I bought mine around '89 or so and at the time I had to choose between a blue one and a pink one, so now we know they came in a few colors more than just clear repros.

I put a crack in mine washing it - the glass is so thin that when I reached for the faucet I bumped the cold by accident and pffffft up the side[:@]. Man, I hate when that happens!

It is a repro, they also made clear, so don't just assume because its clear that its old. I think there is a difference between the planters figures, with the repro either being fatter or skinnier.
