From Morphy Auctions:
A full house and a noticeable influx of new bidders contributed to a grand total in excess of $1.4 million in Morphy Auctions’ March 5-7 Early Spring Sale. More than 750 attended the auction in person.

In the advertising portion of the sale, Mr. Peanut led the parade of prices, with a vertical half-moon porcelain sign originally displayed in the 1930s/’40s in a Planters store in Memphis, Tenn., hammering a within-estimate price of $16,100.

Other noteworthy advertising lots included a circa-1909 framed 23-inch by 40-inch Winchester Cartridges sign featuring a wild turkey, which hit the bull’s eye at $10,350; and a 1936 Coca-Cola 50th Anniversary cardboard poster depicting two bathing beauties – from 1886 and 1936 respectively – that knocked down a refreshing $4,312.
