The Zippo lighters being offered for sale on eBay are mostly modern-day forgeries. Some of them are completely original inventions! A friend of mine lived and worked there in 2007-08 and reports that there are five known factories around Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, presently manufacturing "Viet Nam War Era Zippo Lighters" for sale at inflated prices on eBay. During my three tours of duty in 1965-70, I very rarely saw an engraved Zippo lighter. There were plenty of lighters, but very few were engraved. Beware.
