I have a 14k lighter that I'm trying to figure out who the maker was. It looks like it's from the early 30's and the only thing stamped on it is at the bottom and it says "14k PAT" then on the other side of the screw it say "2052" and thats it. Any ideas?

I little more info for you that I figured out. It looks like a Hahway HW lighter but it's not because Hahway lighters have the little hole in the lid of the lighter to put the pin in so that the flint can be changed.
