    Another GBD Pedigree

    In the mail today. A GBD Pedigree 'The Pickwick' billiard (pre-1980). Looks like it will prove a decent smoker, at least I hope so. One never knows with GBDs, but I've been lucky thus far. Fire grain on the sides and birdseye front and back.

    A classic GBD billiard, I'd say, and in beautiful shape, too. Congrats, Ed!

    Thank you all for your comments. I need to swab it (as I always do with estates, no matter who sells it to me) with Wild Turkey 101 proof. I don't know that much about GBD nomenclature to understand the 'The Pickwick' line. Maybe they intended to name some pipes after many of Dickens's characters?
