Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

To be honest Glen, you pretty much have it sorted.

However, I haven’t come across it before - but it may well be worth a few quid.
Especially in the original, packaging - I am sure you are aware that there are reenactment groups that cover every historical period from ‘‘magic mushroom propelled Viking warriors to pot fuelled GIs in Vietnam.
The ‘60s Vietnam era has recently become very ‘collectable’ and I imagine those little personal items would be of interest.
I’d get them on eBay

Cheers Mark. I may list a bottle speculatively and see if I get any nibbles. I shall use the words “Vietnam” and “US Army” with abandon. And “rare”, naturally.
