    Superman Secret Chamber Initial Ring (Ostby and Barton, 1941) Condition: FN/VF. A rare and early Superman premium. The ring was originally offered in conjunction with the Defense Club Milk Program. For ten cents and two bottle lids, kids got to pick their initial (a "D" in this case), which went on the front panel. This panel pops off and allows you to hide small pieces of paper underneath. Hake's notes that there are two versions of this ring, one with a "mystic eye" on the front panel, and one with an image of Superman, of which our offering is the former. A conservative Fine/Very Fine ring, with no dents, only a few light scratches, and no other physical problems. Hake's Price Guide to Character Toys Very Fine value = $20,000.
