Customised Vietnam-era Zippo lighters previously belonging to soldiers of the US Army. Each of the lighters have been specially engraved, reflecting the particular emotions of their respective owners at the time and adding a human element to the war we now learn about in history lessons. The collection belongs to Bradford Edwards, who decided to auction off 282 of the best at the Cowan’s Auctions in Cincinnati for $35,000 (approx. £22,300). (via huhmag)

You can take a look at more of the collection through Cowan Auctions.
