Item details

Vintage Zippo promotional measuring tape. Has an embossed Scottish man in a kilt on one side of the Zippo tape measure. The measure has wear and discoloration. There are scratches, small dings, dents and some grime. The tape measure no longer retracts automatically. It does a little automatically and then you also have to help it retract manually. The tape is discolored and has wear. The word Zippo on the tape measure is very faded and is in between the 2" and 3", MADE IN THE U.S.A. is in between the 4" and 5". There is a very small shallow etching 1/16" high of the letters R MILL on the front under Scottish. I tried to get the light and angle just right to show it in the pics. On the bottom is the logo Zippo MANUFACTURING CO. BRADFORD, PA. These tapes were originally promotional items. I could not figure out which company this Scottish logo represented. If you know send me a message, I would love to know.

approx measurement: 1-1-16" x 1-7/8" x 1/2"
tape extends to 68"
