Vintage 1940's Halloween BEISTLE Embossed, Die-cut FLYING WITCH Large size

This large, saw-toothed diecut made by Beistle seemingly sold for a bargain price. The story behind the story, though, is that about one inch has been trimmed from the bottom edge. This is pretty severe damage. The buyer realized that something looked a little off and contacted me for my opinion. Given the data I provided, both parties to the sale agreed to void it. The lesson here is to look carefully at auction photos and compare them to photos in reference books, especially mine! :)
