Item Description
Original cardboard mailing box is 1.75x2x3.5" long. Trivial tanning but essentially Mint and including the original tissue paper that wrapped this pair of rings. Each ring is 1.5" diameter and a tall 1.5" each made of red plastic with a 13/16" circular area on the top where the hologram image appears. Also included is white one-sided instruction sheet 5.5x8.5". It explains "The Best Way To See The Full 3-Dimensional Effect In The King's Ring Is To Stand With The Sun At Your Back. The Bright Sunlight Should Come Over Your Shoulder And Shine On Your Ring. Move The Ring Back And Forth A Little Until You Get The Best Effect..." Trivial tanning on this paper. Also included is 3x4" colorful folder which opens into four panels 12" long. This is printed on both sides and explains the principle of a hologram as well as how holograms are produced. One panel of the folder which includes "Quaker" logo has text "King Vitaman Knows You Will Take Care Of Your Ring, And Yourself! Make Sure You Have A Good Breakfast Each Morning, A Bowl Of King Vitaman Cereal, Juice, Hot Toast With Butter And A Glass Of Milk." The ring displays a holographic image of the King's upper body and head wearing a crown. The head area focuses more sharply on one ring than the other. Also, unless in bright sunlight, a flashlight may prove a better light source. The top half of the ring also lifts open to reveal a large interior secret compartment. The entire group is Mint as issued and the holographic feature from 1970 makes these historic rings in the history of premium rings. Only boxed set we've seen.
