Thanks Cortez. Preservation was the top priority for this one. Hand finished. My buffer wasn’t even allowed to look at this one. It’s a true survivor. Shipped in from the old country.

Some beautiful old BBB pipes you got.
Back in the '50s and '60s, BBB was the most popular pipe brand in Denmark and to us pipe-smoking kids in the early to mid-'60s, a BBB pipe was the holy grail, but none of us could ever afford one.

I have had a soft spot for them ever since.

From upper left and down:

Christmas 1959

Christmas 1965

Christmas 1967

Christmas 1968

Christmas 1978

Christmas 1994

Upper right and down:

Silver Grain no. 653*

* * no. 26

* * no. 255

Minerva 307s

* My father gave me his when he went from pipe to cigars in the latter half of the'60s.
