Just dug around and found a post (in SpadeFan's Grabow timeline) where Ted said that Commodore stopped in '93, but that Lane continued to do them, but NOT line stamped.  That makes perfect sense, as we've seen a number of sandblast pipes which look like Commodore, but no line stamp.  I think that could explain Sam's Hillcrest shape above looking like Commodore as well.

Here are a couple other Lane era (I think it's safe to say that) pipes...Hillcrest bowls finished under another line, Hillcrest having ceased in '91.  

Hillcrest shape 113 (same as Sam's above), finished and stamped as Grand Duke.  This one lives here in Greenville.



Hillcrest shape 117, finished and stamped as Golden Duke.  I bought this one on the bag, then it went to Sean, and it is now on it's way to HerMan as I understand.
