Zippo D-Day 60th Anniversary Commemorative Set
On the morning of June 6, 1944, the Allied troops set into motion the greatest military operation the world has ever known. The fighting that began that day on the shores of Normandy, France, eventually resulted in the end of World War II fifteen months later.
Sixty years later, Zippo commemorates the allied launch with the limited edition Sands of Normandy set:
The lighter is a 1941 replica with distinctive wartime Black Crackle finish, each individually numbered. A container of sand makes this set a truly special collectible. The sand was drawn from the very coast the battle was waged upon. Now you can have a piece of history from the shores of Normandy's Omaha Beach. The accompanying information booklet is rich with details about Zippo in World War II, including the story of the Walter Nadler lighter which was lost on Utah Beach on that fateful day. The 8-page Certification of Authenticity contains a complete description of the set, and identifies the distinguishing features of a 1941 lighter.
This set is a limited edition of 10,000 units, each with a distinctive 1940s-style bottom stamp. The addition of the 2004 date code identifies the lighter as a replica.
This lighter is SOLD OUT everyw and is very hard to find, it is brand new, unopened still in original packaging.
