Here is one of mines
I have also a few ZIPPO's
Newbie here! Hi everyone.I recently discovered this at a tobacconist that I work at and I have zero knowledge about zippos as we stopped carrying them but would anyone happen to know the value of this? I've seen $10k+ on zippo's website but that seems pretty high.(Image removed from quote.)https://www.flickr.com/photos/115964548@N03/shares/G5U5C9
Hello Kyle!Neat keepsake from your Grandpa; it looks well-used/carried too.If we could get a clear picture of the bottom of the lighter, that would be helpful. There should be some information stamped there.
Thanks Kyle, that’s perfect.“XIII” indicates it was manufactured in 1997, with “E” denoting May of that year.As I said, its cool to have as a keepsake from your Grandpa, but from a purely monetary standpoint, I doubt it is worth much at all...For one thing, condition is everything with regard to collector value. This example appears to have been used and carried, with no box or papers. For another (and perhaps even more to the point), Zippos in general tend not to sell for crazy amounts of money, unless there is something truly exceptional about them, e.g. used and carried by someone famous (with documentation to back this up, of course), or perhaps if they are very old and in still in excellent condition. Another exception is solid gold Zippos (as discussed earlier in this thread) which may contain several thousand dollars worth of 14 kt or 18 kt gold, even if sold only for the scrap gold value.
Appreciate the help on identifying this. Again I had never seen one like this very little information I was able to get on this model specifically. Not very many pictures either.
