Unsmoked, Carved Royal Duke 84L

My latest acquisition.

Over the past few years, I've looked at thousands of Grabows, but I've never seen a Royal Duke 84 ... and this one is UNSMOKED !!!

Begin *Old Fat-Guy Happy Dance* ...

Oval shank ? These weren't supposed to be made! I have a Grand Duke also. Great score !
Steveaux

Yuppers, Ed. It's an oval shank!

I pretty much thought I'd found a unicorn.



Very Happy

It pretty much is a unicorn. According to the charts-- IIRC-- none of the Duke lines were available in the 84 shape.  But oodballs did make it out of the factory. I have a Golden Duke Canadian also.

Oh, great.

Now, I'm wondering if I should smoke it.

Confused

That's really sweet and unique pipe. Great score!!

I been looking for a filter Grabow/Medico Canadian myself , they aint easy to find.

i would smoke it but baby it.

Ed, IIRC, that one came thru my dirty fingers?

Good to know someone here got it, watched it end but didn't bid. Nice score.

Yeah,a Berwyck or Silver Duke would be nice!!  The only I have that I smoke is a Hillcrest from Joe.

Thanks, guys.

It looks like someone broke photobucket.

I'll try to fix the pics ASAP.

Edit: Fixified.

Last night I noticed a couple Royal Dukes in my box--"to clean". Your post caused me to take a closer look. Mine is smoked but just needs some basic cleaning to use again. Got it in a lot of 12 misc. I never noticed the oval shank. (just noticed poor pic quality, I'll try a few more)

Thanks, Tim.

I've been looking for an 84, and now I found a rare one.

Here comes that dance again ...

Cool
