Tha's awesome Bob! ;):)  Love the wear on it, shows it wasn't just put in a dresser drawer and forgot about but rather used to light up a few. Wonder where the original owner is now... pushin up daisy's after dying of lung cancer maybe.... :( Glad I quit tobacco some 40 years ago. Well maybe a cigar ever now and then.

Thanks for sharing. Anyone else?

Yeah, I imagine that lighter spent more than a day or two knocking around in a  Buick plant. Maybe Flint........................Bob

One thing a lighter ISN'T good for, is removing the fuel cap off a rental truck with external large tank, with short fill spout to CHECK FUEL LEVEL.  Had a customer start to do that one night, and we saw his intent, JUST before he LITE up the lot.

Not sure what you would call this, but its from a cigar.

Hey Hometowner,

 

You'd call it a cigar band, and you'd casually toss it next to your Buick Management Meeting cocktail coaster, during your pow-wow at the Flint Industrial Executives Club. As the representative for Folger's Buick, Charlotte, NC, celebrating the FIEC's 40th Anniversary, the subject of your meeting: Reliability Is Your Business.

If you were a thoughtful type, you'd bring the cigar band home to your adolescent son, who would either wear it himself as a ring, or give it to his girlfriend.

Sadly, I imagine there's little left to celebrate these days, and wonder if the Flint Industrial Executives Club's building is still standing.
