This should provide the information to fix a relatively precise date for any Zippo lighter.
It is most unlikely that Miriam and Aaron would have waited all those years to murmur against Moses if Zipporah and the Ethiopian had been one and the same woman.
Zipporah, as a woman of Midian, did not share the spiritual values of her notable husband who found himself acting against the sacred tradition of Israel.

From 1933 to the mid 50s the word Zippo was stamped in block letters. From August, 1949 through July, 2002 Zippos were also produced in Niagara Falls, Canada - the only place other than Bradford, PA where they were ever produced.
The Zippo script logo was developed in the late 40s and was phased-in on the lighter bottom stamp around 1955. About 13.5 million lighters were produced by Zippo Canada.
