I am looking at a vintage Sterncrest LHS Rhodium, the silver band does not have LHS in the diamond, rather, it has a T. Also, it does not have "Imported briar" stamped on the briar. Any idea as to its vintage?
LHS pipes were made in Brooklyn, NY and were popular with GI's during WW II. They ceased production in about 1960. So, I'd say your pipe is from 1944-1960. BTW, the retail price for your pipe in 1944 was $5.00.
