For Halloween in 1939, the Einson-Freeman Company issued 5 different paper masks capitalizing on the Wizard of Oz movie. Masks were also handed out by Santa in the toy department of a New York department store. The characters included Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, the Lion, and the Wizard. Patent #2021593

There is some light crinkling to the paper, about a 1/4" closed tear at the bridge of the nose, and a teeny chip on of the top of the hat. Both rubber band ear holders, with the Einson tags and patent numbers, are still present. One tag also says "copyright 1939, released by Loew's Incorporated". All in all, a nice and original Oz collectible.
