need Help!! weird Dunhill, any1 seen anything like it?

Post by simonthorby » Sun Dec 16, 2012 3:58 am

hey i just got this Dunhill and its very unusual it has a lines running down the top sides and bottom, im wondering if its been engraved or if it came like this, note the lines seem to have ware them selves. the lighter works great and is in great condition for its age.
thanks to anyone that can shed any light on this.

I've seen dunhills with that style gas cap before, i think it might just be an older one. I'm not as much of a dunhill expert, but that's my guess!

it seems too old/worn to be fake...

its also kinda weird it has a USA patent on it, maybe it was one made in USA? not really sure...
