Vintage S.t. Dupont Lighter, Gold-plated D57, Butane, 1953-1957, Man's Size Rare For Sale

Vintage S.t. Dupont Lighter, Gold-plated D57, Butane, 1953-1957, Man's Size Rare

Vintage S.T. DUPONT - D57 Butane Lighter made in France ca. 1953. Serial number on base reads, "F 8 9 3 8," all stamped separately.This is a good example of Dupont's first butane lighter.The flint changing mechanism remains unchanged from their early petrol lighters.Turning the roller releases the gas nozzle and begins the flow of butane. When the lid closes, the adjustable screw in the cap pushes the gas nozzle back down and stops the flow of gas.This is a rare and desirable lighter that is difficult to locate because of its age and the fact that only approximately 320,000 were made.This example shows some evidence of wear, however, it was never engraved with the owner's initials, the flint and flint mechanism are intact and move well, and the spring that actuates the lid is strong and intact. I am not an expert in lighters, so please examine the pictures closely and ask any questions you might have prior to offerding.This lighter is 5.7cm tall, 3.4cm wide, and 1.4cmin depth. I have not cleaned or polished this lighter. It is being offered in "as found" condition.

**In response to a couple of questions, I have posted some pictures of the base of the lighter with the screw removed. From everything I can gather, this lighter is not only authentic, but also rare to find in very good condition and working order.**

**I've been asked whether there is a paint mark inside the cap on the base of the lighter. While there is not a clear paint mark inside the bottom cap, there do appear to be some flecks of red paint on the cap. After 60 years, the lighter has been refilled often enough that I would have been surprised if there was a clear paint mark left to be seen. To satisfy my own curiosity, though, I've had the lighter evaluated by an expert and I can guarantee it is an authentic S.T. Dupont D57, Line 1, Large lighter manufactured in Paris in 1953. Please offer with confidence; this lighter will not disappoint. Thank you for your interest. Good Luck.**

**If this listing looks familiar, it's because it is. I have relisted thelighter because the previous "Buyer" never made payment. Rest assured; the buyer was the problem, not the lighter.**
