I have had this lighter ever since my grandfather passed away 9 years ago. I have always been intrigued with it ever since i've come to have it. It is a very miniature zippo lighter with a painting on both sides. Its almost like a brooch style as it has a chain with a pin to pin to your clothing or inside of jacket etc. I have never come across anything like this before. from wat I see of it, it seems to be from early century era, but I could be wrong. I can't find any stamp markings on it what so ever so have been having trouble trying to google where it may have originated from. It's in excellent condition and works when filled with zippo fluid, hence the reason I think it's a zippo lighter, as you fill it the same as a zippo and looks like a mini zippo of some sort. I do have a picture of it but not sure how to attach with this comment or sure if I actually can. I'm curious to know where it comes from, what era and if there is any value in it, any help would be appreciated
