My mother gave this to me many years ago and said it belonged to her grandfather. It is not a zippo and has no signature on it. I believe it was made around 1920's and has Lynchburg Tenn on the front with a picture of Jack Daniel's and on the back it say Lynchburg Tenn and says 1866. It is a metal case that holds matches and my mom told me it had the orignal matches in it. I would like to know more information on this I've tried looking through the internet and so far all I can find is that metal cases were made in the 1900's. It is a neat Jack Daniels metal case and would love to pass it on to my son who is in the Navy but would like to know a little history about this metal Jack Daniel's match case. Any information would be nice thank you for you time..I look forward to finding out more about this.

    Good luck-- to me it looks like a modern gift shop item.

    Many times family stories get mixed up:

    Several years ago I went to look at a Civil War hat that had belonged to a g-g-grandfather, was worn during the Civil War, and been in the family since the 1860s (according to family).

    The hat turned out to be a 1960s army hat.

    Check for marks on the bottom-- I'd expect to see something.
