Probably made in Japan during the mid-to-late 1950s, this petite, oval pocket lighter simply has the name "SUPER" on the thumb pad of the firing lever (see photo #3). It carries no other markings or patent info to identify it. This "Super" is quite similar the Ronson Rondette. I don't think this unusual Japanes lighter has ever been used; it looks to be 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 the chrome finish on the the outer slip case and firing mechanism do have a few subtle imperfections. Though not perfect, it is in excellent condition.

This "Super" is 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 of the removable firing mechanism. This NOS lighter will make 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 Super. My studio lighting accentuates very minor surface imperfections and finger prints in the round, reflective chrome. These are much subtler when viewing this lighter under normal conditions. Simply put - I think it looks even nicer in person than my photos show here. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions.
