Special Notes: Shaped like a doughnut with a 2.625 inch center hole. From Wikipedia: "Mister Donut is a fast food franchise founded in the United States in 1956 by Harry Winokur. The primary offerings include doughnuts, coffee, muffins and pastries. After being acquired by Allied Domecq in 1990, most of the North American stores became Dunkin' Donuts." Thus this disc was likely produced before 1990.
This disc also came as a single-piece and a 2-piece model (with a separate yellow propeller snapped into the 2.25 inch hole in the center of the disc) sold under the Bakka brand name (q.v.). Bakka Corp. was in Raccine, WI from May 1982 until 16 September 1993. This mold was used for numerous promos most notably a variety of donut shops. Weight: 100 grams.
