Re: U.S./N.V.A./V.C/Chi-Com items

Yes! Never see them for that in Calif. Pretty hard to find. Here are the few I have picked up over the years. The 5th Special forces came in the box from the manufacturer in Japan, Penguin. Apparently they had a bunch made up but not given out. The guy had a small box of them years ago at a show. The one I really like is the Garry Owen 7th Cav lighter. Nicely etched in . Unit A-1-7 on the shield. Bradford Zippo. Of course the naked lady is an all time favorite. roll Guys name was "Buck". The Vietnam country lighter with the patriotic 'Freedom Frontier" 1966. Set up on a John Wayne dense 'silver' TS shirt.

An interesting in country made boonie out of ERDL ripstop camo material. No vents. Snoopy the gunner machined to the top of the hat with a Hmong headband threaded thru the foliage loops. This has been on there forever. Peace button and the 'finger' patch on back. No lining. Classic 'Go to Hell' boonie. Some stories this could tell.
