Vietnam War-Era Engraved Zippos

Vietnam War-Era Engraved Zippos

Zippos are easily the most iconic lighters in existence. Bic lighters might be more ubiquitous in the “recreational substances” crowd because they won’t burn your hands off when used with glass hardware, but Zippos are still far more iconic. This collection of 282 lighters is composed of hardware from actual soldiers during the Vietnam War. At $35,000 for the collection (roughly $125 each), they’re not exactly cheap, but how can you put a price on a historical piece of art? Since we don’t have $35k laying around though, we’re just going to ogle these beauts from afar.
