Smoking kills....

Have you established a good reputation at HL and got some Sisters stuff to sell or trade with the community? Or are you searching for that elusive ultra rare live bootleg from 1988? Ever had a bad experience with a trader on Ebay? Let us all know here. Outdated threads will be purged over time.

It is a nice item. There are things you can do with a lighter even if you don't smoke.

Only 2 made? My spidey-sense smells something komisch. The original ones just had the old logo, and were available in Chrome and Midnight Chrome (for those who like it a little bit blacker). It's a 2003 issue Zippo, so at least two years old - if :von: had commissioned these puppies I'm assuming that they would have used at least 2005-era if not 2006 units. Why would they use the old logo for a 25th anniversary item? Only 2 in the world? Nice item, but not worth 100 quid - 15-20, maybe - but I guess some people will buy anything... :innocent:

Get a Zippo, have the MR logo carved.
Way cheaper and just has authentic.

how much you could do it yourself for a fraction of that cost and it isn't even official - oh well.

Oh wonderful ... :eek: ;D ...

Please note it doesn't have a flint installed and will probably need a new wick as it hasn't been used for so long
That should be the least problem ... ;D :lol: ...

Yes it's official, sold through the Reptile House ltd in the early/mid nineties.

Still using mine (silver) when it's Cohiba time..

You could always take back what you paid, that might help.

Up to $117+ USD now, sheesh.

More of a separation than a divorce, but I do still pop in from time to time :)

Found this Zippo again when I was sorting through a load of old stuff. I also came across a bunch of clippings (live, album and single reviews, a Melody Maker special, various other gubbins). I'll never get round to scanning them in or doing anything else with them so if anyone wants them, let me know and I'll send them your way.

Do it. I send them up to the SistersWiki (where ever they fit) or to Heartland Gallery ... :wink: ...
