1953 “Hard Pushed” Steelie - Vintage Zippo Lighter

SKU BF000527

Early 1953 "Hard Pushed" Stamp  - w Chrome Over Steel Case

In early 1953 this stamp was used on some steel cases before they switched over to "R" registered trademark version. The insert is correct. The hinge has a slight wobble. It's a used fired lighter with wear from use. No real dings or dents, but def lighter scratches and pocket wear. Really nice piece with a stamp you don't see too often. 

We have graded this lighter Good 82. Really nice piece if you collect steel or want to start. 

Collectors Flame General Grading System
80+ Good - Good represents a usable lighter that shows wear may have some scratches that do not affect the design and/or a small ding. These lighters are serviceable and have been obviously used. Some paint or design elements may be worn.
