Nice catch ... they look to be in good shape!
Abe Frohman

Got them from an old timer, he's got probably 150 or so more pipes from various companies.  Every last one of them in great shape.

He made a remark about how his kids don't care about the pipes and he'd like to get them to somebody that does before he passes.  He's 85, never smoked a pipe and by his words "Don't even know which end you smoke."  

Apparently he comes across them when he goes to auctions looking for the things he actually does have a passion for and buys them because he likes how they look.  If he gets something that looks like another pipe he already has, he keeps the one that's in better shape and sells off the others.

In a few weeks I plan to give him a call and go take a look at his collection of bits and spurs, might come home with a few more goodies, might come home with a hundred more goodies.  Who can say.
