Large 13" Vintage German Halloween Embossed Jack-O-Lanterns Diecut!

This result is truly pushing the very boundary of sanity. This windowpane diecut, one of a set of four made during the early 1930s, has never sold for anything remotely close to this (frankly) ridiculous level. $5799.99 is more than was paid ~10 days ago for a one-of-a-kind German diecut. Hey, I'm not greedy - anyone wanting the one shown on page 170 can have it for $3500.  I am worried that these unsustainable prices are so daunting to new collectors that the overall hobby will be damaged.
