Condition and Details
This lighter actually came to me in very food condition. ( very rare to happen).The flint chamber needed to cleaned and defused and then fitted with a new Ronson flint. It has strong spark. The cotton wadding looks good and no need to exchange. The wick was adjusted to its proper level for better striking and insuring a lite when needed. The actual wrap was cleaned and softened using special sprays to bring it to more natural state and reduce drying out and cracking. Overall, an excellent find and in great working condition. Partially restored as necessary. It uses the Essex striking mechanism , one of my personal favorites . It does feature a blank monogram plate. There is no damage to report. Just the usual axe related marks TOU would expect . A handsome lighter to say the least and a wonderful addition to any collection. A perfect gift for the collector in your life. You can't go wrong with quality ! As always, please use the listing photos, my service no yes, and your expertise as tour buying guide. This is clearly one of nicest Imperials to come thru my office in quite some time . Lighter is fully guaranteed to work or tour money back.... Dimensions 2"
