1953 Vintage Steelie - “Tony T” Zippo Lighter

Sold out
SKU BF000526

Cool "Steelie" from 1953 - Zippo only had a couple of years with chrome covered steel.

This lighter has a name "Tony T", looks like possibly Tambinello, on the face. The insert is correct, there is a slight wobble in the hinge. The lighter clearly fired and used. It has scratches and a few tiny pit marks, no dings/dents. It's 68 years old... it's a survivor and a great lighter for Steelie collectors or someone wanting to get their collection into the '50s. We grade this Good 83. 


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.
