Cereal box for King Vitamin Rings breakfast cereal, as purchased from a supermarket; cereal has been removed; front of box shows a drawing of the holographic ring available for mail-order purchase, with words `Kids! Wear The King's Ring; King Vitamin 3-D Ring with Secret Compartment'; back of box shows a cartoon in which King Vitamin explains to kids who holograms are made and how you can purchase one of the rings, which show an image of King Vitamin; oddly enough, though he says `Find our how you can get one for 50 cents on the side panel of this package,' there is no information on the box for how to do so; box itself contains no holographic image.

Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
