I stumbled upon this really cool lighter last time I was at an antique store in Ontario. I had to get it, it was so pretty. So I got new flint and put some fuel and we were good to go! The person at the shop told me it's likely from WWII and that they would give that to the new recruits in a "welcome package" if you will. I didn't speak with the vendor directly, just someone who works in the shop who knows the vendor. He also said that the city in the back was likely where they were stationed, in Japan. I couldn't find anything about "SANO SILK", and I don't know why it's written "Contractor" instead of US NAVY. Does anyone know anything about this? I'd love more information. Thanks in advance!
