This is a very interesting armored car cigarette lighter that does look to be WWII vintage or earlier. At 13.5 ounces and almost 5 inches long this is not designed to be carried around in a pocket; Rather it is meant to be left on one's desk as an interesting conversation piece with visitors. There are so many different types of armored cars that vary so little in appearance that, with inaccuracies of a small object like this, I can not tell nationality. Could be Japanese or it could be British...
Old pipe cases. Lot of 2. Hinges and snaps work but other cosmetic damage. I hope this price is cheap enough.
