Vintage 1997 Zippo XIII Windproof Lighter 'Niagara Falls, Ontario' Bottom Stamp

Simple machines with timeless appeal.

Zippo windproof lighters represent one of the fastest growing categories in the world of collectibles. Zippo windproof lighters are bought, sold and traded by thousands of enthusiastic fans from nearly every continent. Increasingly, collectors are growing to appreciate Zippo Canada products for their rarity, and therefore, their unique appeal as collectibles. In fact, it's not unusual for collectors to designate a separate Canadian section in their own collections for the Niagara Falls factory's unique line of products.

Counterfeit or Canadian?

It's easy to understand why those unfamiliar with Zippo Canada's history might dismiss the distinctive 'Niagara Falls, Ontario' bottom stamp as a fake. After all, Zippo USA produces over 16.8 million lighters per year, while Zippo Canada's production was just over 500,000 units. Zippo Canada opened in August 1949 and was the only place other than Bradford, PA, where Zippo lighters were ever produced. A final production run signified the end of an era with the closing of the Zippo Canada production plant in July 2002, making Zippo Canada products more collectible than ever.

The 'Niagara Falls Ontario' bottom stamp, like its Bradford, PA counterpart, is 'your guarantee of our guarantee™'
