1999 USS Mitscher Vintage Zippo Lighter

Sold out
SKU BF000592

Wonderfully preserved USS Naval Ship - Gem Mint 100 condition.

New in box unfired Zippo Naval lighter. Everything is perfect on this lighter. It was obviously purchased and then put in the top dresser drawer. 

USS Mitscher was commissioned on 10 December 1994, and was sponsored by Mrs. Elizabeth Ferguson. Mitscher transferred to her homeport in Norfolk, Virginia later in December 1994, and has since made three Mediterranean deployments and participated in many Caribbean exercises. On 20 September 1998 a plaque was dedicated to USS Mitscher at Mahon (Naval) Cemetery where US and UK sailors lie at rest, some from various ships in the 1800s.

In 2001, Mitscher deployed with Carrier Group 2 centered on the aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman. During this deployment, Mitscher visited Algiers, Algeria and conducted joint training exercises with the Algerian Navy. In October 2006, Mitscher participated in Neptune Warrior, a joint war exercise with navies from all over the world.


Collectors Flame General Grading System
100 Gem Mint - Gem Mint is indicative of a lighter that is unused and pristine in every way. It should have no blemishes of any kind and should be the same as the day it was produced. A Gem Mint grade is only used in rare circumstances when these conditions are met.
