This came in the mail today from my friend @ted. It's an Eldorado squat bulldog, shape stamped and sand blasted. Grabow stopped stamping shape numbers on pipes around 1981. One more thing about this pipe is the blast. @ted tells me it is a literal one of a kind, not another one in the world like it, since no other Eldorado was ever sand blasted. And he ought to know, because he retired in 1991 as President and COO of Sparta Industries (Dr. Grabow)! And check out the grain on this pipe.

Thank you Tom, what a pipe! :awesome:
