The lighter because of its age is actually in very good working condition and actually due to its age more likely in excellent condition all things considered ! This was more than likely handed out at the delegate convention as a gift to a non smoker. Very nice and Rare. Limited production and you had to be at the convention to receive ons of these pieces. It's a full sized Zippo lighter and polished chrome. The lighter has the usual handling marks as expected for its age. The only marks on this pieces are a two minor dings on the cap. The hinge is tight and it has the original Zippo insert.
