      Good buy!

      It is a WW1 era lighter. The style was popular among soldiers and many of this type (with various "scenes") were produced in Europe and sold to US soldiers.

      Agree again with Scott, but for a different reason. I think this type of ignition system came after 1903.

      No problem-- different search words I guess?

      I collect military souvenir items and trench art-- take a look at my items if you have an interest.

      There is a similar era lighter in this posted grouping:
