Probably manufactured during the late 1950s or 1960s, I really like the modern look of this Twin Tone pocket lighter. Made by Auer, it features a chrome finish with a grey and soft yellow acrylic body. Auer was a Canadian company, though I've read the company began manufacturing in Japan at some point. Though it is not specifically marked, I'd guess this piece was likely made in Japan. I'm pretty sure this Twin Tone has never been used and is unfired, new-old-stock (NOS). The wick is still white (see photo #5), the spark wheel is clean, there is no char on the snuffer or wick housing. It has not been box stored, so there is a minor chip in the chrome on its snuffer and a few incidental scratches on the acrylic body. Though not perfect, it is in excellent condition.

This a fully automatic lighter that functions just like a Ronson Standard. Depress the plunger to strike and light the wick, release to extinguish the flame. Flint and fluid are both added from the base. This would be a fine everyday lighter. It will be shipped with a new Zippo flint and without fluid. (If you don't plan to use this lighter occasionally, I recommend removing the flint so it does not deteriorate and become impacted over time.) I've provided high quality photos to offer the best preview of this Twin Tone. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions.
