Does anyone know if these used to be some kind of war posters or
Were these sayings on these lighters actually used in war times?

I tend to doubt it, OP. I've never heard of STARR brand lighters. They could've been wartime lighters, I really don't know, but I'd think they'd be far more expensive if they were really that old.

I have my grandfather's Zippo. I think the Zippo was the preferred lighter, at least among U.S. soldiers.

p.s. looking again at the photos of the lighters, one frame says "Starr lighters, since 1988"......

The question wasn't whether STARR lighters were actual WWII lighters, but whether the designs on them were actually War Bond posters or if they came up with those and put them on the lighters. STARR lighters are designed to have a nostalgic feel, not the actual WWII lighters.

As to the designs, I've found at least one of them as an actual war bond poster. So I would say that they were actual posters that were shrunk down to put onto these lighters.

This is all we've been able to find so far. We'll see if we can find the rest of them tomorrow.
