  • Vintage Zippo Lady Bradford Table Lighter Sold $818.00 by eBay Seller caligima612  Check it out HERE:

Here’s what the seller says about this lighter:

Zippo Lady Bradford table lighter from 1949 – 1950 in it’s original box including outer box. It’s all there – cloth pouch, booklet and foil tag which reads “The Gift that Never Fails no luxury tax $10.00”
Insert has patten # 2032695. I am not a collector but in my estimation, it appears to have never been filled. Bottom felt is intact. The rhodium finish has some very slight pitting appropriate to it’s age and the back of the lid has 2 light scratches (see photo). Inquiries are welcome.
This item is sold as is. All sales final, no returns.

Here’s what the seller has to say about it:

You are buying an original rare 1941 Town & Country Zippo lighter. The lighter features outstanding lilypad & dragonfly graphics. The lighter has a four barrel hinge and the original insert. The hinge has excellent zippo snap and minimal wobble. The lighter is in very good condition, the high definition closeup photos say it all. These first-year town and countrys are very hard to find.

  • Vintage Zippo Windproof Black Lighter 1970’s Sold $531.00 by eBay Seller emitt1025  Check it out HERE

YOU ARE BIDDING ON A VINTAGE ZIPPO WINDPROOF LIGHTER FROM THE 1970’S. THIS LIGHTER COMES IN THE ORIGINAL BOX, WHICH IS IN  GOOD CONDITION ~ THE TOP TAB HAS COME OFF BUT WILL BE INCLUDED, THIS LIGHTER IS SOLID BLACK MATTE FINISH. THE LIGHTER ALSO HAS THE ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED. THE LIGHTER HAS HAD NO USE ~ IS BRAND NEW AND CLEAN, THERE IS NO SCRATCHES, DENTS OR DISCOLORATIONS. THE LIGHTER MEASURES- 2 1/2″ X 1 1/2″. THIS LIGHTER WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION TO YOUR COLLECTION.

I found it interesting that there was NO mention of the Kansas Jayhawk logo,

or the company name.  There are a lot of Jayhawk collectors.. I wonder if  it

would have sold for more if they did..

  • 1930’s/40’s Zippo Lighter Great Graphics Unfired N/Mint Sold $370.85 by eBay Seller gitano1 Check it out HERE:

Here’s what the seller has to say about it:

WOW! this lighter is in mint condition, never fire or carried. It dates to the late 30’s early 40’s period. The painted graphic is intensely clean and chip free. This is the cleanest oldest Zippo we have ever had. I am not exactly sure where to price it I think I have it priced low on the “buy it now” for what it is. Comes with original box. If you are a serious collector keep an eye on this one they do not get any cleaner that this.
