Is there a copyright date on the package? Hard for me to guess. Could be late '40s to early '60s.

There isn't a date. I always look for stuff like that. I knew I had seen the images somewhere before, and I just now pulled my copy of Taschen's Vintage Halloween Graphics (from the wonderful Icon series) and it's in there, near the back of the book. I wish I knew more. This came from flea market sellers that bought an entire basement full of cool old stuff. It was an estate sale; they walked in, looked around and said "We'll take it all!"

Well, this is exactly the sort of image I'd like to add to one of my groups. I'm going to split my guess on the year down the middle and invite it to my '50s group, if you please. I read somewhere that, on the internet, the way to get the correct answer to a question is not to ask it (crickets) but to post the incorrect info (someone will always come forward to correct you!).

Ha, how funny and true! (about someone correcting you, eventually)
