    Nope, I did not, Malraux72. However, I've been to "Stag Nights" before ... And, not to be sexist, but I sure enjoyed them!

    malraux72, you know me: once something goes into my collection it stays there (but, when I die my grandkids are going to have some fun selling this stuff)!

    Thanx . I think I do know you a bit ... but I had to try. Can you date this ? You have an amazing collection and it is something I look forward to whenever I check the forum.

    Thanks for the kind words, sir ... Seems to be just you and me and one or two others that collect lighters, but as long as we're having fun ... Onward! (And, that lighter is dated 1965.)
