1940s Bowers No 10 Flip Top Lighter Made in USA - rehabbed with new flint, cleaned - great daily user - SUPER CLEAN (BW004) - Polished


This is the fourth (BW004) 1940s Bowers No 10 Flip Top Lighter I have listed, and it is a nice daily user found in great cosmetic condition. This lighter was rehabbed by replacement of the wick with a a brand new wired Zippo variety, cleaning strike wheel, and drilling and removing a fused flint. A new zippo gold flint has been installed and it sparks strongly. A great daily user. 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 very well made.

The lighter was lightly polished to bring back some of the original shine and exhibits light pocket wear (see photos). The lighter was then tested with a few drops of lighter fluid on the wick to ensure proper function. The lighter will be shipped to you with no fluid as per USPS regulation. Add Ronson or Zippo brand lighter fluid and its ready to put into everyday use.

This lighter was bench polished to clean up some exterior blemishes and we couldn't be happuer with the final result. A nicely patinaed wear to the nickel finish was worn smooth to create some nice warm copper areas. The hand-feel of this lighter in your hand is like polished glass, it's so nice and classy, and it lights dependably as well. Bowers No 10. lighters are well engineered to last for another 75+ years with proper care.
