    I picked up this GBD EBony 1971 in an antique store. I traded some military surplus for it. I only own one other, a "New Era", that is a great smoker.

    Thanks. I have not smoked this one yet Ron, but my New Era apple which is from the late 60's , early 70's is a great smoker. I am going to do some cleaning and sanitizing on this one tonight and hopefully fire her up !

    That is a great shape and not very common. I have a flat oval stemmed GBD and it smokes like a champ. Enjoy it!

    I have an Ebony, Standard and Tapestry all from the same time frame. They're excellent burners for being in the low range of the GBD food chain and that speaks to the quality of the briar, Irish.

    You made a good get, pal.
