Hi! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I can assist you with your lighter (I have a personal collection of about 200+ novelty types). Your piece was produced during the "Cold War" era and meant to be a spin on the spy capers of the present, in working condition, the lighter will normally retail from $75 to $135 on the retail market. Hope this helps. Best, Will
