The FBI’s Reading Room contains many files of public interest and historical value. In compliance with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) requirements, some of these records are no longer in the physical possession of the FBI, eliminating the FBI’s capability to re-review and/or re-process this material. Please note, that the information found in these files may no longer reflect the current beliefs, positions, opinions, or policies currently held by the FBI.
All files are offered in one or more of the following formats: Web Page - The HTML format will work with just about any system, but will take longer to download. ASCII Text - This should be compatible with just about any system and is smaller than an HTML document. Word Document - This format is a little "prettier" to look at and is suitable for printing, as long as you have a version of Windows Wordpad or Microsoft Word that will read it.

The first Zippos were square cornered and formed from rectangular brass tubing with the top and bottom pieces soldered to the hollow tubing to form the lid and bottom of the case.
