    OMG - that lighter is one of the rarest DuPont lighters you can find!

    I think it's would be worth far more if the #24 would not have rubbed off. Gordon collector's hate when that happens!

  8. Default Wow

    You people are f'd in the head

    Oh - I'm sorry - did you think the Cigarsmokers.com "community" was here to serve your needs in evaluating the validity of a potential high end lighter?

    That just goes towards proving one thing....


    You're f'd in the head.



    Glad we got that out of the way up front. Nothing would be worse than to have you "join" our community and spend any time here before we came to that realization.

    I have a better idea..........

    How about you use that useless lump located about 3' above your ass and do some google searches for info on your dupont lighter instead of coming in here and asking to be spoonfed something you could probably figure out for yourself. Why, I would suspect there must be a plethora of information out there on dupont lighters and how to tell if one is real or fake.

    You're either stupid or lazy. Which is it?

    Oh and if you're really curious as to why you've had such a wonderful reception here........while you're googling also search "netiquette" If you have two more brain cells than a cow, you should be able to figure the answer to that out yourself.

    I liked your post - so I got to respond! Thanks for following up and validating for me!!



    Let me ask you, though... If we were to mess with you or give you valid information - would you know the difference?

    ...think about it...

    Here is a cut and paste from a cigarfamily.com post on this subject:

    How can you tell? Pay attention at the following details: 1. Bottom
    Markings: a) Dupont Mark (square): use a 10x loupe you should see the mark
    has good detail with the very small dupont word imprinted in the little
    square. b)ST Dupont Paris Laque De Chine should be engraved not machine
    stamped, you can see the edges are sharp. c)The serial numbers from the
    FAKES appear to have the same fonts similiar to the markings in (b). Pay
    attention at the stamping presure applied you can see that it is stamped at
    the same time as the markings in (b). Also the serial numbers and letters in
    the FAKES are more evently condensed, the spacing between each serial letter
    look about the same as the marking in (b). This is FAKE duponts. You can go
    the eBay and check them out

    AUTHENTIC DUPONT: has Serial number marked at a different time as the
    markings in (b). You can see the font used is different, the spacing between
    letters of the serial is about the size of 2 serial letters putting
    together. The depth of the engraved (again not stamped) serial is DIFFERENT
    than that of the marking in (b).

    Overall you can see an apparent different look between the the Serial and
    the marking in (b). That is an authentic dupont. If serial looks uniformly
    the same as marking in (b) then it is cleary a FAKE.

    Here is the example to illustrate: FAKE: S.T.Dupont PARIS MADE IN FRANCE
    LAQUE DE CHINE 920EB27

    AUTHENTIC: S.T.Dupont PARIS MADE IN FRANCE LAQUE DE CHINE 9 2 0 E B 2 7

    2. Colors: Fake gold color is more red (copper) rather than yellow (gold)
    Fake palladium color is more stainless steel like than platinum like

    3. Lacquer works: Many new Fakes show uneven finish, rough and sratchy when
    you turn and reflect it under a light to see its surface.

    Authentic new dupont lacquer is even, smooth edge to edge and even level
    with the metal trim.

    4.Metal works: Open the lighter lid, look at the lower edge where the lid
    shut down on. Fake has cross marks (by machine cross section cut) and some
    time clamp marks.

    Authentic one is even and smooth without any clamp marks and cross mark.

    Bottom screw caps: Fakes cap edge is more sharp. Authentic cap edge is much
    smoother.
