WINSTON PACK LIGHTERS
Value guide at bottom of page.
NOTE VARIATIONS IN EAGLES and CROWN
Some eagles are realistic and then newer versions have
the simplified diving eagle. Oldest versions
had NO eagle. Crown was used first, then
the eagle was added with the crown, then finally the crown
was removed showing eagle only.

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
