Bought this pair of lighters today mainly because I didn't recognise the cases, but with a 43 headstamp and a waffenampt thought they must be unusual. The headstamps are (30 ash waffenampt 43) I have found out the cases are 30x184B and have been nicely converted into lighters. They appear to have been satin chromed, with the original primer replaced by a knurled filler screw in the base and a wick holder and flint sparker soldered into the top with a cap of chromed brass. I couldn't find out who the maker (ash) was and also wondered if they were converted during the war by the Luftwaffe or post war for the BAOR. Any body any thoughts or ideas? Cheers Hangarman
