Bowl ream, salt/rum soak, cleaned shank and stem, tenon adjustment as it was way too loose, char removal from the bowl rim, micromesh pads to the finish, Tripoli buff, White Diamond buff, 2 coats of Carnuba, then sanded out teeth marks/chatter from the stem, cleaned up and squared off the button, buff and polish of the stem.

I really don't know the year riff raff. This Dunhill belongs to a member of PSF.

Awesome job on that restoration, Coastie.

PS, you're a little low on Carter Hall.  Razz
