Default got two new zippos

I just aquired two more zippos. One I got from my girlfriend'* grandma'* estate auction. We were digging through the boxes that didn't sell and there it was. It was made between 1947 and 1949. The other one I got from my mom. She was in a bar and some ppl were walking around with a survey. She filled out the survey and got a zippo. It'* a 2004 with a brass case.

Lucky!
I just realized that someone jacked my Zippo with my initials in Gold that I recieved from my little brother and his wife for being the Best Man at their wedding. It had been sitting on my dresser with my other lighters (BIC'* mostly) and when I went to get it Friday I realized I hadn't seen it since two Friday'* ago when some co-workers and I were in the bar after work and I lent it to one them -ticks me off I don't remember who it was.
Guard them with your life.

A refillable lighter. Metal, with removable internals for filling and replacing the flint. Top quality, and hard to find new for under $20, and the better the logo/picture on them the higher the price.

Here'* a good one:

I suppose they do make nice souviners(?) And the fact that they will only go up in value is nice too
