John Wayne Personally Used 26 Bar Ranch Lighter

Sterling Silver and 14kt gold lighter used by acting legend John Wayne. This lighter was used by Wayne until he stopped completly smoking due to health. The lighter was given to actor/stuntman Chuck Hayward at one of the Bull sales at the 26 Bar Ranch. Wayne co-owned this ranch and one other in Arizona. Mr. Wayne traveled to Arizona when his schedule permitted in order to promote his yearly polled herford cattle sale. My Dad traveled with Hayward many times to this sale and did buy stock from time to time. The lighter was given to my Dad by Chuck Hayward. T is a makers mark, but I can't make it out. email any questions. This item came from very large western tv, movie and Nashville collection. serious bidders only please.
