Rare 1940s Beistle Co Die Cut Halloween Black Cat Mouse Swiss Cheese

Beistle was really scraping the bottom of the design barrel when it made this diecut, part of a Halloween diecut set that is equally uninspired. (Another from this forgettable set shows a doughnut by a coffee cup.) These typically don't sell for very much money. Someone should tell the deluded (optimistic?) seller as she has slapped a Buy-It-Now price of $549 on this sad piece.
