The only Elvis Ultralite Zippo in the world ?

Sometime back I found a few photo's of the Elvis Presley Zippo display from the Zippo/Case Museum,and one of those Elvis Zippos interested me very much.Why ? because I did know of this Elvis design but to me it looked like it was the wrong colour. Maybe it was the flash of the photo and the fact that these Zippos are under glass. This is that Zippo as it was first released only for one year (2004) and only in France on a high polished chrome finish.So I explained this to Zippo and asked Zippo (via Facebook) some months back to have a look at it and maybe take a nice up close photo of it for me.They didn't take a photo but told me that because its under glass in their display they do remove the Zippos for cleaning once a year and will look at it then for me. So I blew up the photo and studied it Looking at the fact that it could be a mounted Ultralite chip because I can just about see the split on the chip in between the top and the bottom.So seeing that Zippo can't be arsed to just take a photo I asked Chuck who was at Bradford to kindly take a photo of it and he did.Thousands of Zippo fans have visited Zippos Museum and I reckon none of them knew the mega rare only Ultralite Elvis Zippo has been looking down on them.Note the "Elvis Presley" signature is different on the one on display to the later French release. Thanks Chuck See More
