Found this at my local thrift shop, 6$ investment. I just felt I needed it in my collection! I love my tobacciana. Any information on dating it welcome; had a friendly insight it could be from the 50's. I don't think they're too uncommon, I've seen them before, and it seems like it was (and is?) a big company (Ronson) silver plated, I assume. Thanks for looking!
Update... Upon researching a little more, I found this is the 'crown' design by Ronson, looked up Vintage Ronson Table Lighters on ebay, literally half of the lighters for auction are the same design!! haha. Not my most valuable find.

    Also found it was sold for 12$ in 1942, 44, and 46 in Sears catalogue. This is the link to the catalogue page:
