Lets see your Dr.Grabow Golden Dukes

From my notes on Golden Duke:
Made from mid 50's and continues today.
Made smooth and rustic, banded and not banded.
An early version of rustic was double wire carved in the style of Viscount and Westbrook wire carving.  They were number stamped for a few years.  Very few wire carved out there and even fewer number stamped.

I'll go first.

Shape stamped 67

Well, that is a tough act to follow.
My only Golden Duke I bought by mistake. The picture was at a weird angle and I thought this was an 81. It was cheap. When the seller said the stem would turn, thought he was referring to the "adjustomatic", but the stem is cracked and spins. Need to do some research to repair.  It's dirty, tarnished band, etc.  
It's a #10, right?  Needs renewal and repair.

I dont have one but if someone runs across a very nice smooth 36 or 69 regular stem  adjustamatic filter pipe let me know Smile

Of course I'm still looking for a Golden Duke non banded 85.

Both of these are among my best smoking pipes.

This is the Golden Duke 85 Troy referred to. Seems like I got this one from a forum member ??







On the Skyliner--




In rotation. This 69Y is probably my favorite smoker at present. Wish I had a dozen like it.



Also in rotation. Late model that I re-stemmed.

Here's some Golden Dukes I've restored over the years. They've gone their way and I don't have in stock anymore.

I really like the grain and stain on smooth Golden Dukes.

That bent Golden Duke and case you gave to me. I forgot about it. Sitting on the shelf along with a WC 80 that I had. It is one of the best grained Grabows I've had.

37's



83's (the wire-carved is shape stamped)



81's



...like Ed's smooth bent...this grain goes all the way 'round on the 81...
