The Winston Zippo was apparently designed to promote the Winston Cup which is sponsored by the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, who is also responsible in producing cigarette brands like Camel, Salem, etc. Although cigarette smoking and lighters are connected, it does not follow that only smokers collect this particular item. Non-smokers who are fond of collecting event memorabilia would certainly want this Zippo lighter added to their collection.

Genuine pieces of this specific lighter are in bright chrome finish and the bottom part should read XII, made in the year 1995. At the top portion of the lighter’,s body, 25 years is etched plus the Winston Eagle and at the lower part, there should be the Winston Cup’,s logo bearing the crossed flags.

Usually if the lighter hasn’,t been used or fueled, the value is higher. Some collectors would even want their items packed with their original Zippo plastic display casing.

You can check e-stores, auctions and fellow Zippo collectors’, swap meet to chance upon a Winston Zippo.
