    I've had a GBD 357 Virgin on my Holy Grail list for four years and snagged this one sitting on the beach in the Florid Keys. The sun was setting and my wife wanted to head back to our hotel. I told her I wanted to stay until at least 7 PM...

    Another great pipe resto Al! I'm a big fan of the prince shape and that is a nice one!

    I still don't understand how you can restore virginity though...

    Nicely done ss. I like how you were able to bring back grain inside the chamber. Congrats.

    Make aromatics great again.

    Very nice, that's a sharp looking Prince, GBD.

    This thread reminded me to look at my GBD, I picked it up a few yrs ago.
    I was intrigued more by the Perspex stem rather then the Virgin stamp.
    Though mine has the newer Made in London England in the round/circle format.
