Original etched Vietnam zippo.

Bob Dexter The professional Royal Australian Air Force 35 squadron Vietnam

Australian airforce and the canadian airforce have trained and were based together in canada since the second world war so its not uncommon to find Australian units on Canadian zippos.

And it may come as a suprise to some people that t is quite a few canadians who won the Congressional Medal of Honor while serving in vietnam as well as numerous Air medal too many to mention easy to check use google.

Condition Excellent working flint removed for shipping.

had a few questions regarding my lighters over the last 7 years how ive had so many etc i will explain that now .I am not going to write some big long winded story like i see so often now .I have worked and lived between Melbourne Australlia and Saigon travelling all over the country meeting people working drinking as any old soldier would do except at 45 not that old yet still got a few more years in me I started as a collector as i did with Diving helmets being the one who suggested to formation of Historical diving society USA chapter ( any indepth questions ask about that) after seeling my Diving helmets I moved on to zippos All I offer is real incountry lighters found by myself collected by myself and sold by myself after handling over 5000 lighters i think i know a little bit about them on .

Most are gone now and i will sell the last of my zippos and then more onto non zippos vulcans zeniths sunbeam no name and many more varieties all in country found ( they wrere much cheaper than zippos and alot more common) I have over 500 pieces still to sell. The brown water navy site set up and run by Larry Bissionettein their virtual museum at least 15 pieces are formally my zippo lighters or have been and photos passed on by members all those lighters came from Vietnam in the last 7 years.Many more collectors with t own sites have dozens that i have sold ad as you can see from my feed back no complaints.Easiest thing to say is I have seen fakes sell more more than originals sometimes and still dont understand why? I am selling the last batch that i hve in my possession after i finish I will sell a large range of incountry maps rings bits and pieces of rare memorabillia.

No more First day covers too much hassle sold 3 covers in perfect condition small tears at back w they had been in an album guy got to visual see before purchase and still got neutrals.

Good luck
