ARTIFACT: Vietnam Era lighter by ATCO featuring the Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) El Toro Insignia and dated: "3/15/72". The lighter features the etched names of a young couple "DEBI + LENNY" and the classic early 70's sentiment: "LOVE IS NEVER HAVING TO SAY YOUR (sic) SORRY". I wonder where Debi and Lenny are now?

VINTAGE: Circa Vietnam Era.

SIZE: Approximately 2-1/4" x 1-1/2".

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Hand engraved, chrome plated brass and enamel.

ATTACHMENT: N/A.

MARKINGS: "ATCO JAPAN" on bottom of lighter case; "35" on cartridge.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a lighter collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MEX15 LFEX4/15 SFEX10/30/19

CONDITION: 8- (Very Fine—Excellent:) Lighter shows moderate to heavy surface wear and nearly all of the enameled details remain fully intact.
