One of my many side collections is Cone Top Lighters. Below are photos of what I have so far. It's been awhile since I added a can to this collection. Does anyone out there have something I might be able to add to this endeavor?

Cool collection!

I would be interested in other cone top lighters people may have even if they do not want to sell them to Brad.
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

I sold this version of a Duquesne lighter when I sold off most my cans a few years back, I'm still in touch with the person that bought my cans, he may still have it.

The little cylinder on top of the cap of the can comes off revealing a typical lighter mechanism.

I have a Peli-Can cardboard advertiser that clips under the lip of the cone. It's available.
