Vintage 1930s-era Halloween die cut decoration. Whoopee Witch and Skeleton

This is the very first time I have ever seen this Dennison diecut for sale since I acquired mine nearly fifteen years ago. As I write under its caption on page 127, "This item must have had a very limited distribution." In perfect condition, book value is $350. Given this one's less-than-perfect condition, who knows what it will bring. Isn't is quirky? 

10/01 Update: Once again, this blew past book value settling at $510. (Perhaps it is time for a third edition?) I do understand this result more so than the German skull diecut with hat that sold for $967.77. Several of those have sold over the last year but this is only the second time I have seen this offered for sale EVER. Kudos to the buyer. This is a great diecut. (By the way, I feel this diecut was probably made by Gibson. More research needs to be done, but I am definitely leaning this way.)
