    Description

    Little Orphan Annie Altascope Ring Rare Radio Premium (Quaker Oats, 1942). This is the rarest Little Orphan Annie collectible, and is indeed one of the rarest of all premium rings. The ring was issued by Quaker Cereals very briefly during their final year of radio program sponsorship. This example grades Excellent, and is surely one of the best of the 11 known examples. The ring is all brass with adjustable bands picturing a "Pursuit Plane" on one side and a "Bombing Plane" on the opposite side. The top has a small rivet holding three individually movable plates to the ring top. Each plate has a small hole of graduated diameter, used to estimate the altitude of an overhead airplane. If the plane fits within one of these holes, then the altitude could be discerned: 2,500 feet, 5,000 feet or 10,000 feet. Overall the luster on both interior and exterior surfaces is predominantly flawless. A superb example. Hake's Excellent value = $10,000.
