    Recently bought this in the States. But it is packed with the usual plastic box. The model name on the label is the same. So it should be?

      Yes, of course, do not worry - these models were produced in the usual boxes.

    I wonder what is different Zippo 161 from Solid Copper Zippo 161 Brushed Copper? At the request of pictures of these lighters Google gives almost the same pictures. I would suggest that it is one and the same-.

      abbreviation brushed involves one body finishes (high polish, satin), a solid name suggests that the body is made of a lighter one single metal, in this case, copper alloys and coatings without the other metals.

    and copper in this model is made and only the housing or insert too?

    body only, insert a normal color for the case, but over time it becomes normal "steel" color.

    Insert covered with copper plating. With careful handling oblezet think not.

    of carrying in a holster on the case appeared hefty stain. Cleaned with comet - of its kind. But now, from fingers coated black body lighter greenish spots. That there was some piece protective covering?
