My Dad worked at the paint factory this Zippo comes from in So. Cal, in the early 1950's, is what it says on the outside of the lighter, " J.E. Bauer Co. Theh quality paint makers since 1919", down below that it says, " Zone-LAC Terrrific Paint, Best by Test, our 45th year. 1021 N. Mission Rd. Los Angeles,Calif."Never sold a lighter before...hope you buy it! Good luck! Shipping will be a flat rate 4.65 for the US...out of US bidders, will have to send zip code and we'll work it out!
