1937 Beistle Lg Embossed Flying Witch Bats Black Cat Halloween Decoration

Hot damn! My socks have been blown off by this ending price. This is a great image and part of a set of five scalloped-edged, sizable diecuts Beistle began producing in 1932. I have noticed a sharp increase in prices fetched for early Beistle items in collectible condition over the past 12 months. This surprising result contributes to that trend. The rarest one from the set of 5 is the skeleton walking through the graveyard. Given this result, I wonder if that diecut would break $1500?
