A friend recently visited the Zippo factory and I gather from several of his remarks that one can purchase many of these 'historic' designs there.

Hi My operation Granby one was given to me by the brother (A non smoker) of a serving soldier who received out in the Gulf at the time of the operation, so I assume it to be an authentic "Original", if I recall I've certainly had it since around that time, Unorttunately since a recent house move Its most probably lurking in some forgotten trunk

regards

I know the feeling!  I have three rooms devoted to military clobber of various types and periods and can put my hands on all of it.  Just not necessarily when I want or need to! :(
