Halloween Dennison Tally Smiling Spade Face Atop JOL

This is one of the exceedingly rare Dennison small paper items produced in the golden window of 1928-1932. The other thematically similar item in the collection first appeared in Dennison's 1930 Price List pamphlet, so I suspect this is from the same year. (You can see it on page 260.) This has that kooky design aesthetic so coveted by Dennison collectors. I had to pay a princely sum to acquire this, but I have no regrets.
