It's been a while since I've posted any pictures. I've been having trouble loading images, but I think I've solved the problem.
1947 MRC GBD squat bulldog

Here's one that's been on my grail list for a while. A sitter cavalier.
GBD Collector New Standard


The 1976 GBD catalog states the Ebony was light to medium brown, smooth muted black accents, matte finish. It was tough not to put a high gloss shine on it but I tried to keep it original.
GBD Ebony 9438



Family era Hardcastle Jack O' London


And a couple American Briars.
LHS Certified Purex shape #30


The LHS fat gals. Square, diamond, and round shanks.

Some of the loveliest briars I can imagine, Dave, especially that LHS Purex #30!

Well done as always Dave!

I love seeing the pipes after you've worked your magic on them. Well done. :clap:

Fantastic adds, thanks for figuring out the pictures (it looks like you just post the direct IMGUR link to the thread?)
I have not yet laid eyes on a 9438 Ebony, great job on the restoration.

They are very nice pipes. I think I see some of them on the website "pipedia". I usually have a problem with that classic double-groove treatment, whatever it may be called, but it works on every pipe posted here. :puffy:
