    12 Year Project!

    Happy ending story time! I found this lighter about 12 years ago in a park nearby. It was fused shut and I never tried opening it until about a year ago...and broke the top piece. I still had the bottom of the bottle and the lighter mechanism but the top part of the bottle was shattered. Threw it into a drawer and forgot about it...until yesterday! Did a quick hunt after my dental appointment and what do you know...i found a replacement for the piece I broke! Probably lit for the first time in over 60 years!

    So cool and great you were able to find that part. I've got a Royal Crown Cola lighter like yours that kicked around the house since I was a young'un. I did fuel it up and light it years ago, but I keep it in a case now. If I think about it, I'll throw on a picture later.

    That's one...or two great finds! Can you tell what the lighter originally promoted?
    Thanks for sharing.

    Pretty sure it's just a generic design. These also came out with playing card motifs as well.
