Have had this over 50 years and never offered it for sale before. This is the best one I have owned which is why i kept it. It has the original bottom which 99 percent of the time is missing and they just have an open hole where the bottom should be. A lit of people try to cover that fact by adding a wood stick. This is a honey. You most likely will never find a nicer example. You get what you pay for. Once you pay and leave that is the end. This is all original, original paint, original bottom and handle. No dents no repairs. I thought I would try a better item with this. For items that are higher priced for that reason. If you go to Halloween collector site it shows one that brought 3000.00 5 years ago and he thought that was a bargain then. I will not reoffer this. This is the one and only time I will list this for quite some time. There is no comparison. This is like a holy grail item. I have had quite a few of those. High offer so far is 4500.00. If this doesn’t sell it will not be relisted until next Halloween when prices are better if then as I may not decide to relist it at all. I have pretty much decided I will not be relisting this. This has not been repainted or touched up anywhere. It’s been in my collection the past 50 years. I only mention this because somebody mistakenly thought it must be because theirs is not as good which is a stupid assumption to make. This is relisted due to a bad ebayer playing games. I offered to drive it to him. Then no more responses. I did nothing wrong there was and is nothing wrong with this item. I could meet you in the riverton area. I will take it and have it professionally packed to protect me from any false so called damaged parcel problems which would be a shipper problem since once it’s in the system it is out of my physical control.
