Two anti evaporation bungs for my old Zippo's that I dug out of the attic this afternoon, they went up there years ago as I got sick of filling them up all the time, apparently these bungs reduce the need for filling quite a lot

Probably wont mean a much to you lot but the old brass zippo was bought for me on 1988 and has huge sentimental value so it would be nice to start using the battered old thing again

My father made a Zippo style lighter for my aunt Beryl & engraved her initials on it BK, later she married Ken Thompson but kept the lighter, despite being my father’s youngest sibling by many years she died first, Ken gave the lighter back to my Father, when my Father died it was given to Bev as she was the only smoker (at the time) & the only one with those initials, I have often thought of getting it valued along with the silver hip flask he made which is now in my possession.

I have made a few penny lighters and trench type lighters over the years but there isnt much value in them considering the time and effort that goes into it

Sadly the silver flask probably has more sentimental value than actual worth, most jewelers would turn their nose up unless its hallmarked (doubtful for a homemade item) and even then they would be looking at scrap value of the silver itself, i know you wont be selling it anyway so to be honest i see little point in knowing the value

55 litres of Shell V Power diesel for the Panzer. I passed an Asda on the way home and diesel was 20p/litre cheaper.

An inner tube. This was accompanied by instructions to my son not to continue the ride when he has a puncture. It was peppered with holes so I couldn't repair it.

I have an antique brass Zippo that I bought in the 90s. I was living in Cape Town at the time and working on a drip ship off Namibia. On the ship, I arranged for 50 to be made, customised with a badge of the ship on the front. We only use it to light candles but it seems to need filling every five minutes.
