Silver Match Compound Lighter

Silver Match Laurimet Butane Lighter

A very interesting lighter! There is a safety piece of plastic on the end (the green piece at the very top) which is slid off prior to lighting the lighter. To light the end is squeezed into the body causing the spark wheel to strike the flint and opening the gas valve. For filling or changing flint, the entire mechanism is removed from the plastic box container and is clear plastic - see the additional photos for detailed pictures. While most are marked with Manufacturer and model, some aren't.
