Zippo about to produce 500 millionth lighter

Zippo will produce its 500 millionth windproof pocket lighter on June 5 at the company’s manufacturing plant in Bradford.

The actual 500 Millionth Zippo lighter will be a classic brushed chrome with two-tone engraving, a distinctive bottom stamp, a time stamp on the front and an individual serial number of “1”. It will be placed on permanent display in the company’s museum near the plant.

To honor the achievement, Zippo will dedicate nearly all production on the day of the 500 Millionth celebration to the manufacture of two highly collectible commemorative lighters: a 500 Millionth replica and a deluxe limited edition model. All lighters made on June 5, 2012 will feature a custom bottom stamp used for that day only. Both will be offered worldwide in the Zippo Choice 2012/2013 Catalog.
