Original “Operation Stable Door” 1969 dated Zippo *SCARCE* (Z011)

PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST BE 18 OR OVER TO PURCHASE LIGHTERS.

***SCARCE***

“Operation Stable Door” 1969 dated Zippo as pictured.

Original Vietnam lighters are highly sought after and heavily faked.

This is an original Zippo bearing 1969 production markings (see chart).

It came direct from an Australian Vietnam Veteran’s family and has none of the signs of being a fake.

The veteran was a member of CDT 3, though providence cannot be proven due to the family’s privacy request.

Operation Stable Door was the United States Navy and Royal Australian Navy’s harbor defense operation during the Vietnam War. The operation ran from 1966 to 1970. This operation complemented Operation Market Time designed to prevent infiltration along the South Vietnamese coast.

It is a unique piece of history, perfect for display.

It is in good condition but needs the flint replacing.

The engraving on the flint tube is not readable and is extremely faint.

PLEASE USE THE PHOTOS TO FORM THE BEST DESCRIPTION.
