J. Chein Halloween Tambourine (tamborine) Halloween Party Scene!!!

These tin litho tambourines are common enough that they should be purchased for inclusion into a serious collection only if they are in stellar condition. (The percentage of such tin litho items is quite small, heightening your chance of price appreciation if your collecting interests change and you decide to deaccession it.) This particular example of a classic Chein scene appears to be in eminently collectible condition. The BIN price is a tad high, but submit an offer for $250. That should be accepted. 

08/17 Update: A reader let me know she followed my advice and is now the proud owner of this super tambourine!
