He has served three combat deployments in AFG with the 10th Mountain.
I'm not certain as to where he obtained this, just thanked him much.
The couple of obverse photos help to illustrate the really trick paint on this. I've never seen similar on a Zippo.

Those are some cool modern Zippos. If I didn't have so much in militaria collecting, I'd probably collect Zippos...

Zippo lighters can be found in just about any Hajji-mart. ...They have them here in Iraq at all of the Hajji shops, so I would assume, having not been to Afghanistan, it's the same there.
Just wondrin brother, are you suggesting that these Zipppo's could have been finished "in-theatre"?
That would be interesting...

Sorry, I don't think I really cleared anything up. Unfortunately, I have been put on continuous duty and can't get to the PX to take some pictures for you.

The Zippo above does not have the feel or action of anything other than the real deal.
When you get on Stand Down would appreciate photos of what you find interesting.
