From 1933 to the mid 50s, the word Zippo was stamped in block letters. What began as a quality-control tool for Zippo founder George G. To identify a potential pattern in any run of lighters returned for repair, the bottom of every Zippo lighter was encoded with a series of markings.
The Zippo script logo was developed in the late 40s and was phased-in on the lighter bottom stamp around 1955. Since the 1950s, those markings provide a way to accurately date most Zippo lighters.
