Bruno Bernard Marilyn Monroe Zippo Lighters
This article was written to give other Zippo collectors what I was able to learn about the history of these lighters and why they never made it into full production. These lighters are all prototypes, test samples or salesmen samples. The 4 lighter Dyesublimation sets I was told were made as samples for Zippo Reps. I was also told that there were 50 of these sets made but that number is in question. I tend to belive this number because of the number of sets I have seen turn up for sale since 1998.
