    Lone Ranger KIX Cereal Atomic Bomb Ring (KIX Cereal, 1947). The lucky next owner of this piece will know exactly what it felt like to anxiously pull this from the mailbox 56 years ago. This ring was billed as a "seething scientific creation" and it allowed you to "...see brilliant flashes of light in the inky darkness inside the atom chamber. These frenzied vivid flashes are caused by the released energy of atoms. PERFECTLY SAFE -- We guarantee you can wear the KIX Atomic 'Bomb' Ring with complete safety. The atomic materials inside the ring are harmless." Now how can you beat that? The ring is basically a tiny spinthariscope that, when the red tail fin was taken off, you could look through the ring and observe nuclear reactions of polonium-alpha particles on a zinc sulfide screen. One million rings were made -- the most popular premium ring ever produced. This is a perfect opportunity to purchase a brilliant example of an "Atomic Age" toy! This ring is in Excellent condition.
