Who was that masked man?

Found at the bottom of a box filled with “nothing special” at a recent yard sale. It didn’t work but looked really great just the same. For 25 cents, my nephew was happy, but he did need to be educated on the Lone Ranger, the mask, the silver bullets, Tonto and “Hi ho Silver, away” … Did I get that right?

    Were there any markings on the back of the watch? I don’t know if the originals had big full pictures like this but the shape of the watch itself is really good so who knows? And if that’s a brown leather band on it that’s a good sign too.

    I used to eat lunch to the Lone Ranger before I switched to Soupy Sales. He and Tonto went very well with a tuna fish sandwich on Wonder Bread and Sealtest milk with a couple squirts of Bosco.

    I don’t think this was a serious collectible watch. Because I no longer have it I can’t confirm either way. I know it was metal and not plastic. Again, bottoms of boxes are filled with surprises.
    I too watched Soupy Sales when we lived in Michigan in the mid 50’s, along with Sky King, Fury, Circus Boy, Rin Tin Tin, Lassie, the original Mickey Mouse Club, and what other kid shows out there. Those are names I recall off the top.
    Don’t ya love the posts that take you back to The Wonder Bread Years?
