|The picture shows three views of this Old Lyndon B. Johnson Gum Ball Machine Prize Toy Flicker Ring. This ring would have been used as a prize in an old gumball machine or sold in old five and dime stores. It is made of silver painted plastic with a flicker image applied to the top. One image is a portrait of Lyndon B. Johnson and the other reads ''LBJ FOR THE U.S.A.''. It was most likely made by the Vari-Vue company. The back is marked ''China''. It measures 3/4'' tall. It is in mint condition. The silver paint is shiny and what is seen in the picture is not damage. They are reflections. Below here is some Historic biography information for Lyndon Johnson:|
