I was at CVS Pharmacy the other day and came across this special addition on Sherlock Holmes. Ninety-six pages of articles and illustrations. Just started ready and enjoying.

Yep!! Gotta' get this one!!!! Is Basil smoking an old Comoy with the split white bar? I need to do a little research on that marking!! FTRPLT

Answered my own question! He's smoking a pre-1946 (i.e., before the 3-part C) Grand Slam patent!! Nice pipe!! FTRPLT

That sure does look like to be the bar logo for the Comoy's Grand Slam shapes from 1933 to 1945 if I remember correctly. They switched it to the three piece "c" after 1945. I have one or two marked like that one. It is more of a white rectancle, turqoise dot and white rectangle. I think they did that on the ones made in 1933 and 1934 when the pipes are marked "Pat. applied for". Once the patent was issued in late 34 or early 35 the bar logo is all rectangles.

I am hoping the pipe he is shown smoking is a Peterson 9BC or 4AB? Not sure of the alphabet for these old Pete's. Anyone want to guess?
