I've always liked PEZ. Probably as a kid but definitely as an adult. I used to buy mint Pez whenever I could, keep them a few years and then put them on my vintage toy stall. Star wars were always popular, as we're superheroes.
I've got a Pez in my hand at the moment. It's a woody from toy story. I think we must have got it Moonbase Junior.
Taking a look at it there are all sorts of numbers. On the base is a long 7 digit number 191 243 0, also on the base is a 2-digit number 07. On the side is a single digit 6 and on the other side is the US patent number 75238 41.
I can imagine that these numbers are important to serious PEZ collectors. Unfortunately I can only guess at what they all mean.
The best, most collectible PEZ I ever owned was green head and body Creature from the Black Lagoon from 1965. I sold it it on my my vintage toy stall in the Noughties. It was great fun to own search a collectible PEZ for a while.
Have you got any PEZ readers?
