Item Description

Original Items: Only Ones Available. Lot of three original Korean War Vintage Cigarette Lighters. Next to headgear, items like Cigarette Lighters are some of the most personal items a Militaria collector can obtain. Not only are they personal items in their own right, but the details of them can serve as an identifier of the owner to whom the item belonged. An indicative item of one’s personality, these have become very sought after items on the collector’s market the last several years.

All lighters are currently not in working order, but appear to just need new flints and fuel. We cannot guarantee functionality. These are sold solely as collector’s items only!

The lighters are as follows:

- Zippo Style Lighter Engraved with “Korea/ I’m Sure to go to Heaven Because I’ve Served my Time in Hell”. Lighter was made by the firm ARIRANG, with an Inchon address located on the bottom.

- Zippo Style Lighter Engraved “Co.C./ 1TH ENGR (Engineer) BN ( C)" with an Engineer Castle applied underneath. The reverse is engraved “KOREA” with a 4th Army SSI applied under. The Spring latch on this light does not engage, therefore the lighter cover moves freely. There are no maker marks on this lighter.
