1947 Lone Ranger Six Gun Ring Premium

One of the most famous toy ring premiums of all time, this is the Lone Ranger Six Gun Ring, offered by Kix cereal in 1947. It's an absolutely amazing little thing: the metal gun holds a flint that actually produces sparks.

My friend Ron, who was 11 the year this item came out, remembers anxiously waiting for his Six Gun Ring's arrival, and how he only wore it for a few minutes before he put it away, frustrated at the way it got hung up on everything (it's a very tall ring).

  1. You could wear one on each finger...wouldn't that be cool! But seriously, this is a great premium.
