Offered is a classic ZIPPO collectible "The Bowler" from 1969. The engraving in yellow relief depicts a bowler on the lower half with his bowling ball heading for the head pin continued on the lid. This lighter has recently been repaired (refurbished) by ZIPPO in Bradford, PA and they replaced the insert. The original insert is pictured and, of course, goes with the sale.
There is considerable pocket wear on the plating and one small protruding dent on the lid to the left of the bowling pins that shows well in the attached photos. Overall cosmetically this ZIPPO is really a great looking lighter and the patina adds character to the piece. Please e-mail us with any questions.
