Turkeys from Hallmark

I've had the Hallmark turkey diecut decoration below since 1987:
I found this white and gold honeycomb decoration here in the house, tucked under some boxes in a closet. I couldn't find a date on the bag, but the original price was $1. With it were placemats that matched. The mats were used, and have staining - but I think they are begging for some sort of altered-art embellishment.
And then I found this honeycomb turkey from 1987 this year in a thrift store. I paid $1, but the original price on this one was $3.59. I was so happy when I got home and discovered there was also a Beistle honeycomb turkey inside the bag!
And I love the colorful Hallmark turkeys so much that I bought these pins in three different color combinations. At least one of these is from 1987 also. I had to throw in the corn pin, too, just because it's so pretty. They used to put dates on the pins; the burnished- copper-look corn pin is dated 1983.
I'm very happy that we have a Hallmark store in our town; I love Hallmark.
