Nimrod Lighter Dating Remains Unsolved

I’m planning to eventually do 4 posts on the Nimrod Pipe Lighter. First on history, if I can find out anything about it. Then on comparisons, then on repair, then on the Commander, another model from Nimrod.

Now, as to dating, I finally figured out how to disassemble one of these bastards using the original patent and an FGT Sportsman Plug-Lite as references. Despite my best efforts, there doesn’t seem to be any unique serial numbers like the one’s Zippos have on the bottom of their cases.

Anyone know how to date metal machining? Dave? Anybody?
