This listing is for a set of 7 Hungerford peanuts charater from the late 1950's with their original sales tags. The figures are plastic / rubber and in very good condition, with some light smudges and t The tags are marked United Feature Syndicate. Hungerford Plastic Corp., Morristown N.J. They have a specific title for each figure, two comic strips related to the figure printed on them and their original price. I am not 100% sure how the tags were used in the original packaging, but I believe that they were folded over the top of a plastic or mesh bag and used to suspend the figure on a hook. Some of the tags have been split in half, I suspect to open the bag. You get Snoopy , He's 7,1/2 inches tall. His tag is titled "the dog that everybody loves" original price $1.49. Pig Pen , titled "Pig Pen" he's 9 inches tall, original price $1.95. Lucy , she's 9 inches tall, Titled "The worlds No. 1 Fuss Budget" original price $2.00. Sally , she's 7 inches tall, Titled "Charlie Brown's new baby sister" original price $1.99. Linus , he's 8. 1/2 inches tall, Titled "Linus and his blanket" original price $2.00 and yes, he still has his original blanket, although it's a bit discolored. Schroder , he's 8 inches tall, plus his piano, which measures about 4 inches high. Titled "Schroder and his toy piano" original price $1.95. Last but not least, Charlie Brown , he's 9. 1/2 inches tall, Titled "Good ole Charlie Brown" original price $2.00. The figures were a bit dusty when I received them, I wiped them down with a damp cloth and they cleaned up really good, although Pig Pen's dirt is painted on. The detail and coloring on the figures is amazingly detailed, even the small bust of Beethoven on Schroder's piano looks like Beethoven. I had considered selling them separetly as some of them are quite rare, but I coud'nt do it, the thought that they have been together as a family for almost 50 years stopped me in my tracks, hopefully the winning bidder will feel the same.
