The Mastercase was one of Ronson’s most popular lighters, introduced in 1933 it stayed in production for approximately 20 years. Originally it retailed for $7.95, quite a hefty sum, that is the equivalent of $168 in 2022.
This lighter is in excellent condition with all the wear you would expect to see on a piece nearing a hundred years old, but none of the damage that comes from careless handling. The case is free from any dents or deep scratches, and the lighter is in working condition with a fresh wick and cotton packing so you'll have years of use from it. Comes with its original box and felt bag.
Has a blank section where you could have initials engraved in to it which the previous owner never took advantage of. Take it to a jeweller and have initials engraved to make this an extra special gift.
