I have recently found two absolutely pristine GBD pipes. One is a "International" 5291. The other is a VERy sweet little bent bulldog "Sable" 9438 with a grayish colored stem. I note that both of these pipes have awesome grain, and are in what I will term as just about brand new as far as their condition. Well taken care of pipes. I researched at length the GBD pipes on line, and know dating, and such is hard. The question is-----What is your opinions on the GBD pipes, and would you grab these two pipes for a reasonable price. I have inspected both--held them--took them apart---engineering is great on both, and grain is VERY nice. What say you fellow pipers----should I do it???????????
