Beautiful resto jobs on those! The smooth finish one is the first GBD I've seen with a screw tenon ! Twisted Evil

No that's actually another stem from a GBD Meerschaum pipe he was cleaning up for me.

Impressive, Andy. Including and especially that first GBD with the brushed finish. Like to have that one myself!

The second one is no slouch either!

Those are incredible! Much better of a job than I do! The bottom one I think has to be one of the most beautiful GBDs Iíve ever seen!

Thanks Zach, that's my favorite finish from GBD as well. I also have a straight bulldog GBD with the same finish from the 60s, my kinda birth year pipe

I'd be proud to own any or all of those. Hard to pick a fave.

Wunnerful!

Thanks everyone. I find it amazing that someone would let such a nice pipe get in such poor condition.

Oh yes, been looking for 9438s for a while and now I have them. Already smoked the meerschaum, great smoker for sure.
