Being an avid collector , we had to stop. This is a must for any knife collector but for a Case collector you will LOVE it. Friendly staff, a museum to visit and a showroom full of Case products.

I would recommend stopping at Zippo and tour the museum. I never realized how long Zippos have been around. It's nice to see that they are made in Bradford, PA USA. There is also a nice gift shop as well.

Sorry, l have no idea of its worth. Maybe contact Zippo directly. They may know or know where to direct you to who can determine its worth.

Hi Debbie. You may bring your Yorkie inside the museum if you would like, as we are pet friendly! All we ask is that you leash and/or hold your dog during your visit. Thank you, and we look forward to your visit!
