Originally offered as a promotion with Wheaties cereal out of Minneapolis.

Hello. I recently found one of these little beauties with the original battery inside and the copper coil with bulb attached. The back of the flashlight screw on ring has an opening in it. Are there any other parts that went inside of this light? I can push the battery down through the opening til the bulb comes to rest in the front opening. Is this how it works? Thanks for your help.
