We're not so sure when these guys were originally created, but we are sure that they're pretty silly. They appear to be from the mid-20th century, because of their make-up. Each one features what seems to be a broken peanut shell. One of the little peanuts is peaking out, but alas, s/he cannot see anything, because, s/he has no eyes - just a giant, happy, toothy smile! What fun!
Each charm (or pendant) measures 2-1/8 inches long by 5/8 inches wide (at the widest point). there is a little hole at the top with a golden jump ring for easy attaching.
One of our customers just told us that these were a "symbol" for Jimmy Carter during his presidential campaign in 1976 - he was a Georgia peanut farmer! We're not sure whether they were supposed to be positive or negative, but we know they are fun!
Two peanut charms are shown for illustration only.
