RARE Vintage Halloween Dual-Sided JOL Lantern, Made in Germany for Beistle, 1928

This lantern is among my favorites, perhaps primarily due to the evolution one can clearly see between this, made about 1928 for a single season, and what is arguably Beistle's lantern masterpiece, issued three years later. (This earlier version appears on page 35, not 135 as cited in the listing by my good friend. The later masterpiece is shown on page 34.) Although there are well-disclosed condition issues with this piece, Ziz does what I wish more sellers would do: slap an opening price of $9.99 on a great item and trust the auction process. 

06/24 Update: Factoring in its condition, I feel this lantern fetched as much as it could, $192.50
