Gbd pipe dating speed dating albuquerque

In my online research, I found several people who think that it is probable that the pipe was made during the 70’s through 90’s.Several things point to this – the chunky Lucite stem, the name of the line itself and the brightly coloured stems used.I have some great resources that I use to identify the nomenclature, shape and date of the various lines that GBD issued.However, all of my sources and resources regarding GBD are from the time prior to the merger (Cadogan) or shortly thereafter. I also looked on the pipephil Logos and Stampings site and Pipedia and again there is no mention of the line.I used the Pipe Net reamer and took it back to the walls.I would need to clean it up more once I got home but it was better than when I started.The rim had some darkening that I could reduce some more as well.I used the Savinelli Fitsall Reamer to scrape the remaining thin cake from the walls of the bowl.

I took some photos of it before I started to have a benchmark. It was better than when I started but still needed to be cleaned up some more.

I applied the stain, flamed it and repeated the process until the bowl was covered evenly. I sanded the bowl with micromesh sanding pads to make it more transparent and to see if I could make the grain pop. I put the stem on and decided to work on sanding out the inside of the bowl to remove the polishing compound and remnants of cake.

I wiped the bowl down with cotton pads and alcohol to make it more transparent. Stupidly, I put the stem on the pipe to enjoy the look of the combination while I worked. Understand, I was sitting at my work table, the top of which is a meter above the floor.

The faint painted GBD in an Oval on the left side of the stem also suggests a later GBD.

The nomenclature is consistent with usual smooth GBD markings (GBD over Grade (left side) and London England over style number on the right side.) The photos below came from the person I purchased the pipe from and show the general condition. The bowl had a thick cake that I will need to remove, some rim darkening and some dents in the rim. Next to the shank/stem junction in the first photo, there is also the remnant of the GBD oval logo that had been originally painted on the stem.

    You learn to avoid the red flag dates, especially where most of them are on crappy dating sites where all the bottom feeders and mouth breathers are. the types that like to argue for affirmation and validation (wow that was suffocating).
