Something about this 1909 Buffalo brand peanut tin made for the F. M. Hoyt Company of Amesbury, Mass. just spoke to me. Super rusty and faded, it may have been dug up or found in a field somewhere. When I did a little research I was even more intrigued. Apparently Frank M. Hoyt ground his first bag of peanuts into peanut butter in 1902. Based on his visit to the World’s Fair in Buffalo NY in 1901, he decided to name his brand “Buffalo” and expanded into salted peanuts shortly thereafter. The graphics on this large tin are just awesome, with a charging buffalo in the center. At the top the can is labeled “Buffalo Brand Fancy Salted Peanuts,” and underneath “Packed for those who appreciate quality.” Below the buffalo is ” Trade Mark Registered U.S. Pat. Office”. And at the bottom, “F. M. Hoyt & Co. Amesbury, Mass”. Tin measures 9.5 inches high and 8.25 inches in diameter. Can may have once been orange or red, but now appears basically gold and green. No lid. Super rusty inside and out and dented in several places. This fabulous vintage advertising tin just has “the look” for a rustic kitchen.
