1936 Vintage High Polished Zippo Lighter
Updated: Jun 1, 2020
One of my first 1936 Zippo lighter.
From the looks of it, it used to have a high polished chrome surface, but due to age, wear and tear, the chrome coating has faded and the base brass is shown. Causing this lighter to have a unique 'Gold' colour.
Sharp squarish corners, with a lovely patina formed over 84 years. Original casing, with original insert. 4 barrel hinge with vintage art deco diagonal lines at its corners.
Unmarked insert with 14 hole chimney, horizontal flintwheel and piston-like cam spring. Flat bottom with PAT 2032695.
All my lighters are for sale if the price is right.
