I got this pipe the other day from @Fr_Tom (many thanks). It's an unstamped Royalton that Tom Douglas, aka @ted, (RIP) picked up at the Sparta factory. Ed James, aka Ozark Southpaw, (RIP) ended up with it and took it to new heights. Here's the story ~~~> https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/drgrabo ... on#p132640

It's a great smoker, just in case you were wondering. :king:

Congrats! I remember this one, got a good haul from the back room that year. A perfect pipe and momento of Ed and Tom. I had forgot Ed's "grandson" had an account, miss those guys.

OK, I'll never post a picture of my Royalton again :lol: That's a beautiful pipe and for it to be a great smoker is an added bonus.

I had a feeling @Kevin Keith would have an appreciation for this pipe.
