FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION
3- ZIPPO "HIGH POLISH CHROME" CIGARETTE LIGHTERS advertising for the GOODYEAR TIRE & RUBBER CO . & KELLY TIRES (a subsidiary of Goodyear at the time). THESE BELONGED TO MY UNCLE WHO RETIRED FROM GOODYEAR IN THE EARLY 70'S.
I found this on the ZIPPO website-
The appearance of the word "Zippo" in the bottom stamp provides another clue to dating. There have been three major changes. From 1933 to the mid 50s, the word Zippo was stamped in block letters. The Zippo script logo was developed in the late 40s and was phased-in on the lighter bottom stamp around 1955. It was used from 1955 - 1979. In the late 70s the logo was redesigned. It was incorporated into the bottom stamp in 1980.
if you go there it shows examples of the lettering types. These lighters I have for sale falls under the script logo used from 1955 - 1979.
APPROXIMATELY 2" X 1"
THANKS FOR LOOKING!
