Rare Antique 1910 Spear's Halloween Ring Toss Game IOB J.W. Spears & Sons

This seller has sold Halloween items that I feel are reproductions, and sometimes these reproductions are crudely done indeed. He has been trying to unload this game for perhaps two years, and I see that he has finally snagged a buyer for it for $700. Although it is difficult to deduce from photos alone, I feel that the pipe and rings are not original and have been crudely fabricated. Although the JOL face appears to be authentic, I have questions about the box. All in all, whomever the buyer is has taken risks in acquiring this game.
