'FRANKENSTEIN' Iron-on transfer 1970's

This wonderful Frankenstein Iron-on transfer is from the 1970's and is possibly one of 4 designs that could also be bought already printed on a T-shirt. The pictures below show the front and back of the transfer and a advertisement from 'Legend Horror Classics'#2 (1974) showing 3 other designs [Dracula,Werewolf and King Kong] already printed on T-shirts that could be bought.


I bought this back in the late 70's maybe early 80's from a local joke shop. The box and coffin are about 3 inches across, the coffin and skeleton are made of plastic and inside the coffin is a magnet, the skelton goes on top of the coffin and when you tap the coffin the skeleton turns over.For some strange reason mine doesn't work anymore but with such a cool box and the actual item it still makes a nice little display peice. I scanned the coffin and skeleton because I couldn't get a decent photo of them both.
