The only pipes I cannot resisi right now are vintage pre 1980 GBDs
I cannot seem to pull pictures off ebay, but here is the description of one
Pictures when I get it


GBD VIRGIN, FINEST-GRADE, Early 1345 Poker, Gorgeous Grain, Excellent Shape!
Description
GBD VIRGIN, Early Production
London England, Finest-Grade
#1345, Brass GBD Rondelle
In Excellent Overall Shape!

Offering this intersting shaped poker, in the finest-grade GBD VIRGIN model. It's a rarely seen 1345 fat poker with straight round shank and rounded top rim, slightly bent saddle bit. The Virgin is stated to be the finest finest quality in the line, and this one shows off some excellent tight birdseye and flame cross-grain.
Here's what's stated in a GBD VIRGIN ad: "The GBD Virgin is the finest quality of the entire GBD line. The hardest, toughest briar available is expertly cured and turned to offer the coolest, driest smoking pleasure. The natural color of the briar mellows and richens with constant smoking. The Virgin is available with a mouthpiece of the finest para vulcanite, and also in clear perspex, as shown."
The color is a rich deep honey in color, and there are no fills, and no issues, slight surface burns on top rim and that's it. The draw hole is bottom center and it draws easy. The stem is in great shape, with no tooth wear. The brass GBDrondelle logo shows the pipe is made before Cadogan changed to a surface stamping, so pre-1982 timeframe and of high quality, weighs about 1.25 ounce.
Markings: GBD VIRGIN, LONDON ENGLAND 1345
Approximate Dimensions:
Overall Length – 5 1/4”+
Bowl Height – 1 1/2”
Inside Diameter – 3/4”+
Weight - 1.25 ounce

And yes, the vintage GBDs are hard for me to resisi
