older manual light meters

Do some of the older light meters read wireless flash as well as ambient?
If so what make/ year models do without burning a hole in the pocket?

There are light meters and there are flash meters. One can assume that flash meters will also serve as light meters, but light meters never serve as flash meters. Two different names for two different items. If you want a flash meter then "flash meter" is the term to be doing your (re)searching on.
