Those funny little promo lighters that look like a small pack of cigarettes.
Value guide at bottom of page
Some of these oddball lighters cannot be classified
with the others because of their size or nature.
But, they definitely are oddball pack lighters.
These packlighters are actually 1:1 scale measuring 3 3/4" tall.
They are refillable and actuated just as other pack lighters
by depressing the cig to ignite flame.
1:1 Marlboro R3 1:1 Tourney R3 1:1 Kool R3
This is one of my favorite lighters, imported from the Phillipines.
It actually has 3 small LED lights and a battery inside.
When the lid is opened the LED lights randomly flash all around.
2 1/2" tall Refillable R5
Tiny metal cased lighter 1 5/8" tall.
Pull down on chain clasp to ignite.
Not a lighter.
Actually has speaker on backside
and says: "Cough-cough No smoking"
when cig is depressed
I know, not a pack lighter but its cute!
Depress sticks of gun and flame
shoots out perpendicular.
Actual gumpack size
These are just so cute I had to show them.
Miniature Zippo style lighters
Yes, just over 1" tall
RARITY and VALUE GUIDE
One nice thing about pack lighters is they are a recent item so consequently they are somewhat common and inexpensive. I’ve tried to offer a guide for rarity and value on the pack lighters, so underneath each pictured item there is a “R” and then a number (eg. R3). This reflects the rarity of a particular lighter with R1 being very common and R5 being scarce and very rare. The value is simply a range on low to high price one can expect to pay for a mint lighter. Each lighter pictured will have a "R" number underneath.
Here is a value guide for loose MINT packlighters
(deduct for any flaws –increase if still in sealed package):
R1 = $1-3
R2 = $3-7
R3 = $8-15
R4 = $15-25
R5 = $25-45
