Offered for sale is a vintage full-size Zippo hand engraved lighter in a polished chrome finish, ca. 1938. This lighter features an engraving of USA on the top and the initials RAJ down the right hand side and a floral engraved pattern on the left side. This appears to have been possibly engraved by a military service member in the field prior to or during World War 2. The lighter is in good condition especially considering its age, showing signs of normal pocket carry. The insert is original. The hinge is a little loose. The chrome is about 70% intact. Needs only flint and fluid to work. You can own this hard-to-find, highly collectible pre-WW2 vintage Zippo lighter for $499.99/obo.
