Vintage Halloween Cat With Devil Mask Die Cut Decoration

This diecut has always been one that I've appreciated. It is a clever design, made at a time (1940s) when Beistle's original output was spotty. Made from unusually thin paper stock, it is nearly impossible (impossible?) to find one in perfect condition. The one up for auction is in a typical condition for this diecut. Sustainable guide value is $225 for ones in better condition. 

02/13 Update: Given the condition, this fetched merely $67.66.
