vintage pumpkin jack-o-lantern Halloween collectible candy bucket made Germany

The mark on the bottom reads, "Container Made in Germany." As I point out on page 7, "German items made after 1949 would bear a number of different markings, such as ..."Container Made in Germany," or simply "Western Germany."" So, although this authentic JOL was made in Germany, since it was made during or after 1949, the value is considerably less than other similar JOLs made prior to World War II.
