This listing underscores the peril of listing an item with a BIN when you don't have much of an idea what it is that you are selling. If this seller had listed this as an auction style listing, it surely would have reached a price in many multiples of what his ill-chosen BIN price brought. This Pumpkin Pops mechanical point-of-sale sucker holder is exceptionally rare. This is only the second time I've seen a complete example for sale. (The prior time was in 1997 when I purchased the one in the collection from Dunbar Gallery.) Even with the unfortunate damage, this is a prize, and the person who snatched it up for a song is surely singing a very sweet tune. Refer to pages 116-118 for other examples of these wonderful Rosen creations.
