Manufactured in Austria during the 1950s, this chrome Streamline 8800 features a intricate art deco design. IMCO began manufacturing trench lighters Austria during the 1920s. In subsequent years, the company adapted the mechanics of their trench designs for everyday use and began manufacturing in the United States. Simple yet elegantly constructed, these IMCOs have three key features. They are wind proof; the wick is recessed into the tube shaped outer case providing excellent protection on windy days. The firing mechanism is ignited by pressing down the trigger at the top left of the lighter, so your finger never has to touch the spark wheel. And, its wick is self-contained in the fuel tank, which can be removed to light pipes, camping stoves, candles, etc. (see photo #4).

This Streamline is working and in very good condition. It will be shipped with a flint and without fluid. (Please do not store this lighter with the flint though, as it will deteriorate and become impacted over time.) Its firing mechanism and snuffer have been cleaned, I've installed a new NOS IMCO wick, repacked the fuel canister, and restored it to good working order. I've also cleaned all exterior elements of the lighter body to remove any major grim from age and use. It sparks well, but sometimes needs a couple of tries to light. I've provided high quality photos to offer the best preview of this lighter's condition. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions.
