This offer to swap the current item for a Vietnam war era cigarette lighter really sparked my curiosity.
I was particularly moved by the story that Blythe shared with me via Facebook Marketplace:
My 17 yr old boy has this to swap..did light for a couple of months but needs a new flint… crazy it works all these years later right. He bought it at an Animal Welfare League op shop in Queensland … it’s a cool piece its actually from the Vietnam war and we searched up the name on it on the army web site and sure enough he on there.. would make a good talking piece. He wants the ring for me for Mothers day.
Without a thorough knowledge of military collectibles I think I may have to pass on this one, but thanks for sharing this awesome piece Blythe.
