What is this? I've had it hanging on my wall for a year or two. It was found on the sand below the water line at the Fire Island National Seashore/Wilderness. It's lightweight and friable, like a sea creature. It's 24 cm (9.4 inches) long by 11 cm (4.3 inches) wide. 24 cm is 1.7 monkey skulls, if that helps.

What kind of lighter is this and where can I find one? Here are a couple of pictures. My brother got this lighter as a gift years ago and I've always wanted one. Anyone know where I might be able to find one. My brother always refers to it as a "miners lighter" and on the bottom it says; IMCO TRIPLEX SUPER austria 6700
