I'll see if I can help a bit.

First of all, your image has to be hosted somewhere out there on the web. You can't just pull it from your computer (at least, not that I'm aware of). So, assuming your picture is hosted like on smugmug, or picassa or something, locate your picture, right click on it and "copy image URL".

Once you've done that, come back here, click on the box just above that looks like a tree (between the chain link and the floppy disk images) and paste your copied URL there.

That should do it.

I can't make out the stamping other than Comoys, but I'll take your word for it. That won't take much work to have it looking like new.

I tried the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on it and it came out beautiful. 1:30AM there I am cleaning and reeming pipes, wife looks in like I have lost my mind. Love those pipes!

My wife gives me that look every once in a while! Old Comoy's smoke like a dream, enjoy the pipe(s).

That's a gorgeous Comoy. I've really focused on Comoys and have about 28 of them now. Blue Ribands, Old Bruyeres, Traditions, Grand Slams, London Prides, Selected Straight Grains, etc. I try to get estates with the three part C inlays. Pre-Cadogan take over in the 70s. Been smoking pipe now 30+ yrs. and Comoys are best I've ever smoked. Over my Dunhills, Ashtons, BBBs. Also, many of these early pipes are still relatively inexpensive, outside of the Blue Ribands of course. Plus the history of Henri Comoy! Let us know how she smokes for you, and hopefully it'll be the first of many added to your collection. Cheers.

Kashmir..thanks. I tried a number of outstanding pipe brands back in the sixtys when there was a proliferation of outstanding "stuff" of all kinds. Do you remember the Beattie Jet Lighter? That was a piece of work..and the Dunhill lighter in gold and silver. They were works of art. The Comoy was the best brand that I decided on. The mouthpiece was slim and delicate feeling and the grain of the woods were spectacular. I had the good fortune of meeting one of the Reps for Comoy and he gave me a selected straight grain "2nd" with the comoy stem without the "C". Fact was as he said it was a selected straight grain but the company didn't want to hand out the signature pipe with the "C" for free. Anyway, it has been a great ride and finding you guys and these forums to be a gift from the heavens.

I think you're right about the thin stems. Comoy really has comfortable stems. And of course the grain is spectacular like you said. They're also a heck of a lot cheaper than Dunhills. My second choice. I guess the forums are the next best thing to a tobacconist shop with a smoking room. Take care, and enjoy that Comoy.

Don't know if any of you guys will be attending the NJ pipe show this weekend but a very good friend is going to have some UNSMOKED Comoy's Everyman's pipes. They will not be inexpensive. I believe he quoted me as saying around $70. Each, but they are fine vintage pipes. I have no affiliation other than being good friends. He is known as CAPTAINPEG, and his name is Randy. If you're interested you better check his table early. And I must agree with Kashmir, that Comoy pipes are fantastic smokes.

Wish I could go to the show. I'm in sunny north Florida enjoying 73 degrees and sunny. Being here is the next best thing!

Well I envy you, because I am in Maine where it's 32 degrees, cold, and grey. I am going to miss the NJ show for the first time since its inception 20 years ago. Darn!!!
