    Description

    Captain Midnight's Secret Squadron Club Kit (Fawcett, 1945). World War II sparked a patriotic fervor unparalleled in history. Kids of all ages wanted to do their part, and Captain Midnight was there to help. This kit was meant to give kids a way to "aid the cause of the United States in every way we can in war and peace." Included in this lot is the 1945 Secret Squadron manual that tells what is expected of members, how to signal other members, and much more. Best of all is the Magni-Magic Code-O-Graph. This badge was used to decipher the important coded messages that the Captain gave every night after his radio show. According to the manual this badge was "made of a highly complicated combination of metals." The badge in our lot is exceptional; there are two very tiny scuffs only visible under the closest scrutiny but, otherwise, this badge is probably the finest you are ever likely to find. All the gold toning is present with no wear through whatsoever. The manual is a colorful FN+ and has the pledge signed in pencil by the original owner, Harrold Collins. This group also comes in its original mailing envelope. A nicer set might just not exist.
