The most expensive Zippo: 1933, sold for $ 11,758.98

* Hold your breath * WOW!! at the moment this is a record price for the Zippo lighter on Ebay! It is completely original, the earliest instance of Zippo 1933, the height of 2 7/16 inch (6.19 cm), which tells us about the time of release: the first half of 1933. The unique thing. Lighter once traveled to repair and it was replaced by the wheel and re-soldered loop, but otherwise everything is original. Actually, the same famous Zippo (in slightly better condition) was once bought for $ 18,000. Envy this acquisition - such unique instances appear on the market every few years. The starting price was only lighters $ 9.99, 46 bets and voila! As they say, demand creates supply :)
Sale price: $ 11,758.98

And here is a copy of a page with Ebay and the full story of this unique betting Lot:
