Quasi Vintage 3.9 Pez
Vintage pez are generally considered those with no feet and patent numbers of 3.8 or lower. Around 1987, pez added feet and the back spine was raised significantly higher than the front spine. The thin feet are about half as thick as the newer thick feet seen in some 3.9 and 4.9 and beyond patent numbers. Some collectors consider the 3.9 patent thin feet and even the 3.9 thick feet pez to also be vintage, but since they represent the transition period between vintage no feet and more recent thick feet, we have grouped these dispensers in a category we call quasi vintage for these 3.9 thin and thick feet dispensers.
