WORLD'S FIRST ZIPPO LIGHTER
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first Zippo lighter?
The Zippo Manufacturing Company
was founded by George G. Blaisdell in Bradford, Pennsylvania in 1932 and in late
1932 George began work on his first Zippo lighter which was finished in January
The first Zippo
lighter was never put up for sale and it resides on display at the Zippo/Case
Museum in Bradford, PA, along with a note from George stating "First Zippo
lighter - do not touch".
The first Zippo lighters available for sale, 82 in all, were produced and sold in January
1933 and could be had for a zippy $1.95 USD.
All Zippo lighter carry a lifetime warranty so even if
you bought one of the original 1933 models, they will fix it or replace it for free, but be
warned, they are worth tens of thousands of dollars.
