I don't know the age of this DGRD but it looks to be in excellent condition and a deal at 14 bucks. I've always loved the prince style, and I didn't even know the RD was made in this style. I smoked Grabows as a kid because they were cheap but have picked up a few since resurrecting my pipe smoking and they smoke great. They also come in more sizes and shapes than I realized!

Nice 66! I believe that seller was/is a DGCF member from the California High Desert.

Interesting...is there a book where all the Dr Grabow history and charts are compiled in one place?

Maybe not an eBay find, but rather an internet find to partly answer my own questions, I found this pretty cool website on Dr Grabow history.

There isn't a book but the DGCF has a lot of info. Here's a place to start. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/drgrabo ... s-etc-f15/

That's a good site. Mac was a founder of the Dr. Grabow Collectors Forum. His emphasis is on Grabow pipes of the pre-Sparta Chicago era. Sparta Grabow pipes are covered extensively on the DCGF.
