I think this seller made a poor decision to group these diecuts and sell them as one lot. The "wear" on the cat and owls isn't wear at all, but the highlighting technique the Germans used for a short time. I feel it is nearly always best to sell vintage Halloween items that are in fine or better condition singly. If this seller had done this with these items they would have surely reaped a much better overall return.
