Zippo Army in 1976, $ 440.67

In 1976, lighter engraved with homemade
Sale price: $ 440.67
Extremely mysterious thing! All engraving on the lighter made by hand, but what they mean, we can only guess - for example, that the lighter belonged to soldiers who served in the U.S. military base in West Berlin :) In any case, more than impressive purchase price. And by the way, a very good example of how a collector's value is determined by supply lighters - a high end price originally predicted it would be difficult.
