  Leader Carbide Flask Flush Top Back.JPG - LEADER NON-RECESSED FLASK - Hip flask, marked LEADER TRADE MARK PAT OCT 23 1923 on each side, with removable top and two flip open non-recessed doors (one for matches and one for carbide, light gold color (4 1/4 x 4 x 1 1/2 in.)  [The Leader carbide pocket can is one of the most sought after by collectors.  It was patented by Eli Israel of Wilkes-Barre, PA on October 23, 1923.  There are two lids on top of the can, the smaller one for pouring the carbide from the can and the larger covering a compartment that could hold matches, extra burner tips or other small articles.  The entire top of the can can be removed to easily fill with carbide.  Two styles of the Leader carbide cans are known.  The earliest style shown elsewhere has recessed lids.  A later style shown here has flush lids.  The cans were electroplated with cadmium (with a blue-white color) or with cadmium sulfide (giving a yellowish orange color as shown here). see Bohannan, Mining Artifact Collector #15, p 23]
