    It is simply unique! Owner lucky - at that age, in that state, but still essentially limited edition ... No such finding in my opinion should be evaluated in more than $ 550, definitely. Even with Zippo 1953 Kelvinator is not as good as it is, though, and a more than 2-fold. Well, again, it is in my subjective opinion)

In dating, I did not find a stamp with the inscription oblique zippo without dashes and dots, but here this type of stamp is and he points to the 65th century, the true he model slim - for Regular not found, although by analogy should be as well. Now, waiting for help from the experts =)
