This era presents the most difficult lighters to date.Whilst the base stamps my look similar there are a number of differences to observe.These range from the material used, the number of holes in the chimney, the shape of the chimney and the design of the flint wheel, as well as the actual stamping on the insert.All of these can be used to help date the insert, and when used with the case dating chart above can help to give a more accurate date of manufacture.This can (and has for me) make it a lot more difficult to date the insert than the actual cases, so all then information below is based on my own personal observations.1 Horizontal teeth on flint wheel - Closed Chimney 2 Diagonal teeth on flint wheel - Closed Chimney 3 Diagonal teeth on flint wheel - Open Chimney Rounded Cam (Top) Square Cam (Bottom) Different pads From late 1951 until mid 1953 I have found no less than 6 different inserts in use. Rather than show the whole insert, I have decided to show just the stamping, as this will allow larger pictures for comparison purposes.Looking at the "CO" it will be noticed that the height of the lines has shrunk as both these letters are more rounded.

It should be noted that styles H & I have only been found on steel lighters so the pressure of the stamping machine could have been increased to cope with the different material During the period above, there were a number of alterations made to the insert.As with the bottom stamps, close attention should be paid to the positioning of the word Zippo compared to the top and bottom lines.I am indebted to a number of other Zippo collectors, who have sent photographs of lighters in their personal collections to help me compile this page.Towards the end of 1946 the hinge altered with all 3 barrels becoming the same length.The top picture is a chrome plated Zippo, whilst the bottom picture is a Nickel-silver unplated lighter.By looking at factory dated lighters we can make some assumptions that that the lighter was made either in that particular year or maybe the year before.All the information on this page has been obtained from a study of these dated lighters.The third column in the table below describes the changes in the manufacturing process and the first time it changes, links are provided to photographs showing the detail..One thing to be aware of is that some people may have swapped inserts between lighters in their collection in the past, so it can be possible to find brand new in box lighters where the insert and case do not match.Both the base stamps above were still being used and two others have been identified from this period.The "O" of Zippo now sits almost perfectly above the "E" of Made, and the vertical line of the "B" in Bradford lines up with the vertical line in the second "P" of Zippo.
