Is it true that Grabow bought out Whithall pipe company after WWII? I have seen a few of these pipes and I found one on Ebay for a very cheap price. This pipe is tremendous, I thought it was a WDC but its stamped Whitehall, Curious!!

Whitehall was a division of Culbro some where in NJ.They were still in the pipe business in the late 70s. Not a part of Grabow.
Their factory was in Wheeling WV. td
