My grandfather was a 1st cousin to Midwest pipe maker Don Mock who lived in Iowa and Minnesota. Don passed away in 1989 but left behind a large amount of pipes, quality briar and lucite stems. When he passed, those all went to my Grandfather who sold some but kept a good deal of it in storage. Until now.
I remember Don when I was little and recently began researching Don's Pipes online, but found VERY little info since he died prior to the creation of the internet. I've been selling his aged briar and mouthpieces on Ebay and will start auctioning the Don Mock handcrafted pipes on Ebay this week. If you are interested, please look me up on Ebay.

I figured I would make a post here as many of you are obviously avid collectors and Don Mocks are very hard to find. The majority of them are unsmoked. I will snap some pics and post here as well in the next couple days.
Thanks for your time,
