Lets see your Grabow 83's

Many times when pipes are posted on the forum small differences in shape, stem, carving are noted and questioned resulting in an old timer or two educating us on the nuances of Dr. Grabow pipes and history.

So to continue the "Lets see your Grabow" series;

Let see your Grabow 83's, another classic shape that Dr. Grabow got just right in my opinion.

I'll go first:
Commodore
Oldredbeard

I agree, the 83 is certainly one of my favorites. They definitely got this shape just right.

I've got 3 Royal Dukes I re-stemmed.




This Westbrook.



This Golden Duke.



Also a couple of Royaltons, but I can only find 1 picture right now.

Nice looking pipes gentlemen. I have one 83. It's a filtered Silver Duke.

Thelonious Monkfish

I really like the shape of those tapered bent diamond stems.  They give the bent bull a whole different look.

Regal 83. My one and only.

Good lord, no wonder I can never find an 83 for sale.

Stunning pipes guys. This is my one and only Sculptura 83.



Troy_nov1965

I seemed to have misplaced mine . They must be with my box of 81's.

Super nice collection.
Your Belvedere has the extended stem, 1573, for paper filters.  Is it in fact a push filter or a screw in?
JoeMan

Spade...the Belvedere is a standard ajustomatic with rook stinger. When I saw yours also had the extended barrel stem, made me wonder if they used that as standard on the Belvedere for some reason.

Haven't had time to participate in the show and tell posts. But I'll get it this time. Laughing
An Emperor:



And a Westbrook:


I thought I had a Regal but I must have sold it. Laughing

Wait a minute... I think I just saw it posted further up... Laughing
Dave G

Just putting this out there.

If any of you hoarders want to get rid of your Emperor bulldogs, I have an extra kidney I could spare.
vwdeano

Great stuff fellas...  I'd bid TWO kidneys, but I'm afraid someone might take me up on it...
C.E. Purdy

I might part with one of mine. Don't really need two. Let me think on it. Might consider trading, if you've got something I need.

Well, here is my 83 that came with a pipe rack purchase on Ebay.
A really fine smoker and very comfortable to clench all day. What a nice surprise!

I'm fresh out of 83s these days but here's some I've gone through over the years:

This is a before and after of one I stripped:



Pair of Commodores


These are all Sparta-made 83s, many with other brand names than DG:
