    I need some help on a Comoy Patent number, please?

    2001012

    The pipe is also stamped on the shank with a 2 or a weak *2.

    I will shoot some images after I finish the laundry.
    Squat bulldog shape with a saddle bit stem. Made in England in a circle.

    Thank you,
    Don

    Don, U.S.PAT. 2001612 is the Grand Slam patent. The system was used on other Comoy's pipes, I believe before the Grand Slam line was introduced in 1933. The *2 is the leather washer size for the stinger. I've seen it before on other non-Grand Slam pipes before.

    The stinger apparatus is long gone, I thought the shank had more room for "something" going on in there.
    Thank you Dave, the stampings are weak in spots.

    Wow! Never have seen straight grain coming up to the rings and above it, birdseye. Fantastic.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    That is nice, I've seen Blue Ribands that don't have that grain!

    I’ve read that pre-war Royal Comoy’s were their top brand but this is the first one I have seen that could justify that statement. What a pretty pipe!
