Marked " Ronson Mastercase,Trademark", also Newark,N J,USA,Patent Re:19023,Canada Pats: 288,148,289,889. Send for free book" How To Get The Most Out Of Your Lighter" Ronson Art Metal Works Inc.

    I was going to mention that it perhaps was a Ronson because the picture at the top left hand corner reminds me of my Ronson Whirlwind leather covered lighter that I've had for a while now. Ronsons are great lighters. Even though this isn't my item, I'm glad that you found this information. Great job. :-)
