H.M.S. Submairne . Barcroft - how rare ?

H.M.S. Submairne . Barcroft found on ebay, yes I was lucky to buy a zippo lighter and a barcroft table lighter, from HMS Dreadnought. (british sub 1960s). looking on this site I only found one other HMS Barcroft . I was in touch with a navy man from Dreadnought, and he told me they brought 100 lighters for the crew, but said he did not know about the barcroft, any view on this please ?, would a zippo navy collector like the barcroft or would it be just a oddity ? if they only had regular lighters, next question as a pair of lighters what are they worth ?, has any member sold a pair like this before ? the barcroft has never been fired up, clean wick etc, the regular, used with the owners name engraved. intresting web site, I will be reading more posting on the forum .. regardsps did or does Zippo keep records of how many lighters are sold to the military ships ? I read somewhere all new USA Navy ships are given some Zippos ?See More
