A Chinese friend of mine who is an avid ligher collector sent me this picture and asked if I can help identify the hallmarks. Any information would be greatly appreciated. He lives in China but buys most of his lighters from the US. I hope the picture is clear, I can ask him to send a better picture if that helps. Thank you!

The HH mark on the left was used by H. Hooijkaas of the Netherlands.
The lion mark was introduced in 1953 and indicates a fineness of at least .835.
