2003.44.8


Cigarette lighter made of metal, stamped in the front and back. It has a flint and wick mechanism inside the lid. On the front of the lid it says"Banme Thuot 68-69" and on the front of the body it has a dog with a blurb that says: "It's been a tought year." On the back it says: "I know I'm going to heaven because I spent my time in hell Vietnam." On the bottom it is stamped "Zippo, Bradford, PA." It was purchased in Vietnam as a soldier's lighter, but it may not be authentic from the 1960's era, as many were done later for the tourists.

Used: Vietnam | Soldier
