Vintage Halloween Paper Mache Pumpkin Jack O' Lantern 1940s-1950s

This isn't a vintage item and, therefore, has zero collectible value. Authentic USA pulp JOLs will have the expected bumpy pulp texture unlike this one that appears to be as smooth and unused as Bush's brain. Authentic JOLs will not have this lifeless mien, which reminds me of Joan Rivers these past few years. Lastly, authentic JOLs will have impressed rings on the bottom, unlike this one that has none.
