The above lighter was given to my grandfather, Ralph Scott Williams Jr., as a safety (ironic) award by the Gulf Interstate Gas Company. It looks well used as my grandfather was a smoker. The lighter was manufactured by Zippo in Bradford, Pennsylvania (their corporate headquarters are still located there.)
This is the first family heirloom picture taken in the light tent my wife constructed for this purpose. Many thanks to her and my aunt, Terry Kaiser, for letting me borrow the lighter.
