These lighters were most commonly made after World War 2 when aluminum was easy to get and brass was still in extremely short supply. There are other lighters that are very similar, but they were arbitrarily left out of this collection as these are simpler and obviously machined from aluminum blocks while others are more complex.

Chi Chi Aluminum Block Lighter

Irwin Schuman's Chi Chi Club (opened 1936 as the Desert Grill by Jack Freeman and in 1941 became the Chi Chi under Schuman) was the number one hangout in it's day.... Elvis, Liberace, Sinatra, Merv Griffin, Dean Martin, and so many more (they all played this gem of a club)! If you were in Palm Springs, California, simply put "everyone went to the Chi Chi". With brother Mark Schuman, Irwin build and operated the Riveria Hotel in 1952. c. late 1940s - early 1950s. Two other identical lighters a shown with the Unbranded lighters and one is blank and the other has the USMC emblem on it - undoubtedly produced by the same company that produced this lighter.
