It's just a flesh wound!

A little $10 investment (?$ value, anyone?) I made in about 1989 or so. I had visions of this guy sitting on the dark wood desk of a stockbroker in the '20s where he used it to light is fat cigars. Also, I thought it was really cool!

I went to the Lake of the Ozarks with my parents and some of their friends for a weekend. While with my mom and her friend "antiquing", I came across this fella. I remember taking it home and cleaning it up. It took about two days of cleaning and polishing to get it up to snuff. I suppose it could use another polishing, huh?
I'll get some lighter fluid for it, and get some action shots later!
