This is a circa 1940s Regens Windproof Lighter in Very Good to Excellent Working Condition. Made in USA. This design of lighter was made for US field forces in the 1940s. It is similar in internal design to the Austrian lighters featured in my Tobacciana Section, in that the lighter fluid canister and wick assembly can be removed and used for lighting campfires, providing light in a dark tent, etc. The difference with this particular design is that rather than pulling down on the top rear to light, you squeeze the front and back of the lighter together. Cosmetically, this lighter appears to have never been used. There are a few very minor scuffs on the outside; and the inside of the flame snuffer is not blackened......indicating little to no usage. There is no sign of rust or corrosion either inside or outside. This lighter has a new flint and it lights. All that is required is lighter fluid. It measures 2 1/8 inches high by 1 1/2 inches wide by 1/2 inch thick. It is hallmarked on the front side "REGENS", and on the bottom "MADE IN USA PAT. No. 1896140".

This handsome and working Regens Lighter would make an excellent addition to someone's collection of 1940s Tobacciana, or a great display piece.

Please visit my Tobacciana Section for more lighters to choose from.
