Just picked up this cased 1901 Kirwan for restoration on Ebay for around $71- I know absolutely nothing about Kirwans and am not finding any information online. The first question would be the missing stem- I assume the original was amber- won't know if it was threaded until the pipe arrives and I can check it out. It looks like from the impression on the case that the original stem was a saddle stem. Does anyone have any thoughts on this one? If it has some value properly restored, I'll send it out. If it doesn't I'll cut a stem and restore it myself...
