Like many of you who are stuck at home, I've been doing a bit of organizing and getting back to doing some pipe restorations that I otherwise wouldn't have much time for.

I'll sometimes buy a "lot" of many pipes because I'm interested in one of them, without much regard for whatever else might come in the basket. I was putting together these pipes, considering donating them or selling them on eBay since they're not a priority in terms of restoration (I've got another 17 waiting for attention).

This pipe here caught my attention. I had no idea what it was until I looked it up this morning. It's a first-generation Linkman's Dr. Grabow. The stampings are identical to the one on Pipephil (with the exception of the 4-digit model number). Propeller logo on the stem, 'Pat.No., 1896800,' and "De Luxe" over "Bruyere."

I was a neat find. A little bit beat up--just a little--but still very cool.1.jpg2.jpg4.jpg5.jpg6.jpg

Cool! What's the silver ring mean? It is a higher-grade? It's pretty unique.

I have a Linkman Hollycourt Special, Patent No. 2073663, shape No. 7023.
That's not a silver ring if it's like mine. That is a metal threaded device attached to the mortise so the metal stinger can screw into the shank.
