Several fantasy items,
among them the ones shown below, are widely reported as being produced.
Please understand that these may be nice pieces, just not the vintage they may represent.
The newest version is of the Scottie on a chain. Buyer Beware!
There are also folks who are taking reproduction labels and stickers and putting them on lots of different items.
I received a picture of the lighter below which falls into this category.
