1969 Moon Landing Zippo Lighters
On July 20, 1969, American astronauts Neil Armstrong (1930-2012) and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin (1930-) became the first humans ever to land on the moon. About six-and-a-half hours later, Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon. As he took his first step, Armstrong famously said, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
Zippo made the Moon Landing Zippo shortly to commemorate this milestone in mankind history. Moon landing was one of the last Town and Country Zippo produced as well.
The regular sized Moon Landing Zippo was produced in year 1969, while the slim version was produced much later, in the year 1975.
