I have one question, how come you didn't list this in the Ebay finds before the auction ended? Lots of these other guys needed reminded and would have helped you part with more of your money.

Just kidding, nice find! Bet you won't be using that one much, unless you are trying to measure how addicted to Bolens you are.

I never seen anything like this before has anyone seen one of these before/ know anything about it?

Congrats, Brian!

I had two of the same tapes as yours. ......I gave one to a Bolens collector a few months ago. ......The other lighter has to be around here---someplace! (I hope!)

The lighters were given to Bolens dealers through the salesman that called on the dealers. ......That was back when we purchased equipment directly from Bolens, and the factory had reps on the road. .......Later, we had to buy equipment through a distributor.
