What kind of Dupont lighter is this?
 
This was my fathers lighter and I would really like to know what kind of Dupont it is. I have looked everywhere online for something similar to it and nothing so far.

I posted images from dropbox because it wouldn't let me upload here.

Your best bet is to get directly in contact with a Dupont dealer.

It's a st dupont gatsby decorated with Chinese red laquer.

It's actually quite a lighter you have there as the red laquer versions are rarer and more expensive than their usual black counterparts. I believe this is due to a different curing process for the laquer itself but I could be wrong.

That's is a very, very nice pice and worth a few bucks!

Well done on your acquisition, gatsbys hold their value very well and make great family heirlooms.
