ARTIFACT: This is a scarce circa 1935 Radio Orphan Annie Secret Society decoder badge. First introduced as a comic strip character in 1924, Little Orphan Annie went on to score her own radio show as soon as 1930, and her Secret Society sprung up in 1934. The decoder badge could be acquired with a purchase of Ovaltine and enabled radio listeners to crack encrypted messages broadcast on the show. The badge is in copper and silver-plated copper and its design is heavily influenced by Masonic symbols, and for each year the show aired, there was a badge with a different design.

VINTAGE: Circa 1935.

SIZE: Approximately 1-1/4" in diameter.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Copper, silver-plated copper.

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal safety-style pin with tubular saddle.


ITEM NOTES: This is from a radio collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. ebay VAHX12 LHEX8/12

CONDITION: 7+ (Very Fine+): The badge shows some small areas of light to medium wear and tarnish.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
