Forgive the dreail, but it was a decoder pin. I don't think any radio show ever offered a decoder ring, though there were other kinds of ring offered by Orphan Annie and other shows.

I used to have a Captain Midnight decoder badge that one of my uncles got as a kid and gave to me. I recalled it as a ring, and when i researched it i learned there were never any rings and recognized a photo of my long- lost badge. They were going for 50 bucks on eBay.
