Dear Angie

The Ronson Capri is a quite common lighter. It was first manufactured in 1953 and it uses the robust Ronson Essex fitment. As far as I know the production of the lighter ceased in the 1962. There were a lot of different finishes of it including leather covers and enamel. The basic model was the chrome plated one which you have. Overall it is a lovely lighter! Keep it save!
