Charlie Brown & Snoopy Tin Sign

28×30 original antique 1969 tin sign of Charlie Brown & Snoopy School Diploma – $400. Find it on eBay (affiliate links).

For the well-versed Peanuts collector out there, instant recognition of what this Charlie Brown & Snoopy Tin Sign really is has already been shouted at the screen. Yes, it’s a trash can. Chein Co produced a variety of Peanuts wastebaskets in the early-mid 1970’s. Their familiar shape and manufacturing process was ubiquitous among waste containers in this era through to the 1980’s. Easy to print on, these metal cans were produced for anyone’s favorite subject.

What’s less clear is how did this particular piece escape the factory? Perhaps it was a reject, not able to be processed into a full Peanuts trash can. It could even have been smuggled out and kept in a dark corner of a dank cabin, hoping no one would find out about the pilfering. The world may never know.

How much is a Charlie Brown & Snoopy “Tin Sign” worth?

The damage to this piece makes me reject the high price tag for this piece. The fully realized trash can in this condition wouldn’t be worth more than $20. However, this is a rare, perhaps one-of-a-kind, piece of Peanuts history. Is it an interesting history? Not super interesting. Is it rare? Most definitely. If I found this at a flea market or antique store, I’d be more inclined to pay around $75-125. If you feel different, feel free to send your comments! Rare items like this are tricky to value since there isn’t data on previously paid prices.
