Help Me Achieve Immortality: Find Shag’s “The Vulture” Zippo

OK, I’m finally going to admit itI need your help. Starting a dozen years ago, the infamous (and now, alas, defunct) Flame Rite produced an amazing series of  Zippo® lighters by over 20 of the most cutting-edge “lowbrow” artists of the day, including Glenn Barr, Tim Biskup, Coop, Shepard Fairey (Obey Giant), W Kelley Lucas and the poster boy of the movement, Shag.

In late 2002, Flame Rite introduced The Signature Series – an ultra-collectible line of limited to ultra-limited runs in specially packaged editions that were signed and numbered by the artist. The first one released was Shag’s “The Vulture,” pictured above. The edition of 100 was released and immediately vanished.

I’ve been looking for “The Vulture” ever since. I’ve collected multiples of all the other Shag releases throughout the intervening years, including his second limited-edition “Tikipus,” but the Holy Grail of collectible  Zippo’s® has eluded me.

After a decade, I have come to accept that I cannot do this alone.  I need intervention, divine or otherwise, and your assistance if I am ever to find peace. Please help me find “The Vulture.”
