Lighter Century, 1942-1945

Title: Century
Type: gasoline lighter
Material: Steel
Year: 1942-1945
Country: United States
Approximate cost: $ 15-50

Lighter Century - typical fliptop of World War II, was produced for the US Army. It is made of steel and coated with typical coating crackle green or brown-gray. Some specimens have inscriptions CENTURY and USA, in windshield, and some do not have any inscriptions.

The last instance is particularly interesting and keeps the spirit of its former owner, an American soldier or officer who scratched on the body of the name of his beloved: «MY ETHEL DEAR».
