1962 Jfk Kennedy Zippo Lighter Air Force One Christmas Gift —pilot James Swindal For Sale
You are buying an AUTHENTIC 1962 Zippo cigarette lighter given by President & Mrs. Kennedy to Air Force One Pilot Col. James Swindal. The lighter is engraved with the Presidential seal, the first couple's initials and the date 12-25-62. The lighter came from The Cobbs sale in March, 2008, of items from James Swindal's Estate.Zippo lighters with the presidential seal were produced as an official White House gift for the Kennedy and Johnson Administrations though they typically carried only the seal and sometimes a facsimile signature. This lighter was a very limited variation created by the Kennedys for the Christmas of 1962. Presidents have regularly given small, relatively inexpensive gifts to their immediate staff and cabinet members. This particular lighter was given to James Swindal who was Kennedy's pilot on Air Force One. It was Swindal who flew the President to Dallas and of course brought his body back to Washington. This particular Zippo lighter is very unique in that very few exist. Some other members of the Air Force One crew received similar gifts. The lighter is in excellent condition with its original box. ALL PHOTOGRAPHS ARE OF THE ACTUAL ITEM YOU WILL RECEIVE.
ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS I WILL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER.
SHIPPING WILL BE FREE VIA USPS PRIORITY MAIL WITH FULL INSURANCE, TRACKING AND SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION.
