What a waste of money! Some poor schlub probably bought this thinking they were being a truly vintage item. This seller has been selling nothing but what I consider to be recently made items for quite a while. He doesn't make many sales, but once in a while traps a "mark." Too bad. Know your history: The Germans did not celebrate Halloween back then, so everything they made was for export. There was no economic reason why any product made for export would not have been sold. Sellers who try to tell you about "warehouse finds" as a result of the fall of the Berlin Wall in the early 1990s, or for any other reason, frankly, are either woefully misinformed or worse. Don't be like this poor buyer who basically kissed $119 plus shipping goodbye!
