Comments: I recently have come upon a lighter in a family friend's
yard. It was a lighter for the USS Los Angeles, date
unsure, located in Greenfield Missouri. On the front is a
crest, and on the back, scratched into the lid is the
initials RLP. I'm looking for any information on the
owner of this lighter, if possible, I'd like to return it
to whomever may own it....someone may be missing it. I
know it's not alot of information, but some would
help..Please?
