1940s Bowers No 10 Flip Top Lighter Made in USA - rehabbed with new flint, wick and cotton - great daily user

Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a second 1940s Bowers No 10 Flip Top Lighter Made in USA - rehabbed with new flint wick and cotton - A great daily user lighter. I love this brand of lighter, they are tough, durable and solid. I like these better than Zippos because they are built like a tank, reliable and well made. This lighter looks like it has seen some history, maybe in the pocket of a GI in WW2 or Korea, perhaps in the desk of a daily pipe smoker, or a banker for his cigars. It is heavy in your hand, lights every time you use it and snaps shut firmly the same way it did when it was first made.

This lighter was taken apart and cleaned then reassembled and rehabbed with a new Ronson gold flint. The original cotton packing and wick were removed and replaced with a brand new zippo wick and fresh cotton. The lighter was lightly polished to bring back some of the original shine and exhibits light pocket wear with a few dings (see photos). The lighter was then tested with a few drops of lighter fluid on the wick to ensure proper function. Moderate pocket wear - see photos to determine condition of exterior for yourself. The lighter will be shipped to you with no fluid as per USPS regulation. Add Ronson brand lighter fluid and its ready to put into everyday use. Good daily user lighter.

Photo is of the lighter you will receive.
