RARE Old BIG Antique Vintage Beistle / Luhrs HALLOWEEN DIE CUT Skeleton Pumpkin

This diecut, made by Beistle during the early 1960s, is a divisive one. Most collectors either adore or abhor it. The former find it whimsical and humorous while the latter find it dumb and uninspired. I fall in the former camp. How about you? 

Someone in the "former" camp obviously acquired this as it sold at an unsustainable price of $294.90, versus a sustainable value of $175.
