Here is a vintage 1970's Budweiser Beer can lighter that is in very good condition.
The flint strikes, the wick appears to be original and from what I can tell, the lighter has never been used. I do not believe the lighter fluid reservoir has ever held fluid.
I think this item's age is circa 1972 - 1976, given that the last location indicated on the beer can is Williamsburg. Budweiser opened a brewery there in 1972. It opened another brewery in Fairfield, California in 1976, but that city is not reflected on the beer can.
The can is 5-3/4 inches tall and 2-3/4 inches in diameter.
There is no rust and only one very small dent at the bottom of the can.
See the photos for more details.
This item would be a great addition to your Budweiser or lighter collection.
The price is $25.00 or best offer.
Located at Southern Antiques and Accents in Fairhope behind Pizza Hut, Booth 65.
Thank you for looking!
