    I do not know much about this lighter except that my Dad had something like this. I always thought it had something to do with when he was in the War -- or they called them Trench Lighters? Not sure as that is memory of his words from like 40 years ago when my Dad was still alive. Do not know where my Dad's went -- but when I saw this like 10 years ago, I HAD to buy it!!

    Anyone have any info on this -- is welcomed!!

    Thanks for looking .....Post number 498.......LOL

      Hi Phil. Do not think trench art -- but I think these are from around the War period. I found something that says IMCO also made some.

      Something similar, scroll *down* in link:

      Looks like a pipe lighter I saw once. Designed to hold upside down and to block the wind. Or explode it ! Depending on if your sharing genius talent on JackAss. Lol!!
    7. antiquerose antiquerose, 6 years ago
      Yeah, I think they were advertised to work in the wind....or upside down LOL
