    This itty-bitty yellow and green box once held (kinda still does?) "SIX HEAVY DUTY RENEWAL FLINTS FOR OXWELD LIGHTER". I'm assuming that [the OXWELD lighter] is more along the lines of what welders (etc) use to light blowtorches than anything meant to ignite cigarettes, and also fully admit I've done no research whatsoever about any of that. The box now contains what I'm (again) guessing is mostly "flint dust" -- a fine gray colored powder with a few vaguely cylindrical shaped lumps remaining within. I've also no actual idea of how old it really is.

      THANKS KINDLY to: Vynil33rpm, fortapache, yougottahavestuff, Irishcollector., & blunderbuss2 for sharing the <love>!

      YGHS, no doubt that's good advice -- I also don't plan to eat or breathe it...! <lol> Quite frankly, I'm not certain I've ever even actually *opened* this little box before to see what was inside until I did so for the pics here, I'm also now kinda surprised at how well the lid apparently *does* seal it closed?!!
