This lighter is called "The Windy" and was manufactured in Matawan, NJ BY the Matawan Co. It has a metal insignia that was applied at the factory. The Insignia is in Gold and Black and reads U.S.N. Rec Sta. The rec stands for receiving and the Sta stands for Station. There is a gold eagle with the words under the eagle reading Armed Guard Center. This lighter works. See photos for this proof. This lighter has great history from the WW2 ERA.

The purpose of the center was to provide at one central location facilities for receiving, berthing, messing, equiping and training men in the Naval Service assigned to duty as Armed Guard gun crews on merchant ships.

It is nicely priced at $27.50 and this price includes free shipping in the USA.
