Vintage WWI Brass Trench Art Cigarette Lighter This lighter is , to the best of my knowledge, brass covered over a base metal. The side with the womans' face reads REPUBLIQUE FRANCAISE : the opposite side has a mans' face and the words GEORGIVS V DEI GRA:BRITT:OMN:REX FID:DEF:IND:IMP: Please note the wear marks in the pictures. This lighter measures @ 1 1/2" at the widest point. It does have the striker wheel and flint cover intact. A very interesting piece.
