Thank you for sharing your journey of discovery with this pipe.

    Incidentally, I've never seen an internal repair like that, and I'm rather intrigued. It does preserve the aesthetics of the pipe, As Neil noted. Any idea how this is done? Obviously someone much more clever than myself perfected the technique, but it seems very counter-intuitive.
    Herb this video from Jeff Gracik, give some idea about how the shank ring could be done, you have to skip ahead to the 5:50 mark, I couldn't figure out how to edit the video.

    What a great looking and unusual Blue Riband. That repair ring is very interesting and the Gracik video helpful in understanding the process. Nice job on the restoration.
