GOOD AFTERNOON, brothers. Recently I purchased a used DECATUR pipe stand on EBAY. Along with the stand came 3 pipes, that I am thinking of refinishing. The first pipe is a JUMBO Whitehall, the second a COLOSSAL from FRANCE, and the third a UHLES. The UHLES appears to have a well worn meerschaum insert. My question is, can one just clean out the used meerschaum insert and use the pipe that way. Any information on these pipes and possibly there value would be GREATLY appreciated.
