$23 shipped, knock a few bucks off if more than one.

Sorry for the terrible photos, it's been dark and rainy and this old house burned out a few more bulbs that need replaced again. If the sun comes out or I get around to fixing the lighting I'll get some better ones.

These are beaters, they came to me as basket cases, some more so, and were made whole again and served as work pipes. All have a coat of shellac.

Barrister stummel with Grabow Duke filtered bayonet style push stem

Grabow Commodore 70

Grabow Starfire 84L, this is the bigger version of the 84. Stem is slightly rounded at shank

Grabow Viscount 85, shape stamped. Stem is not original and is stepped down slightly from the shank as I didn't want to alter the shape in case a close match for the original stem came around

Likely to add to this as I go through more.

Older model Starfire 21 with pins holding the threaded female collar in place in the shank. The first run used ones without any scoring on the outside of the collar and needed to be pinned to stay in place. Rim has been cleaned up/reworked a little, someone did a number to this poor thing at one point.

Those are nice no matter how you slice it. That Commodore 70 is a cool pipe!

Thanks, guys. These are nice beaters but far from new or perfect. If you all could have seen what some of them looked like before.

I am smack in the middle of selling one house, and then buying another. I'd be all over them, but am trying not to bring more stuff in right now, LOL. Don't think these aren't swell pipes-they look dandy. and the prices look fine to me.
