    I think the vaseline application is for when you are boiling a stem. But what do I know, I don't even clean my pipes.

    Yeah, I was a bit upset that the H had been rubbed off, but other than that the pipe looks brand new. It still has the stamping on the bottom of the bowl and all of that. In the end it doesn't really matter to me personally. I won't be selling it or anything like that, I didn't pay all that much for it and if I were to sell it I believe I would make money off of it either way. But again, I won't sell it, I like it too much!

    I knew I had some somewhere...I checked the thread I put up when I got them, here you go:

    the logo was just painted on, wasn't a solid white either, it had faded a good bit.

    Judicious use of vaseline might have saved it in the bleach bath, but when it came time for polishing... Well, working around that H would have been more than a $10.50 job! Kind of a bummer that it's gone, but as you say it still has the stamping on the bottom and FWIW you know everything is original. No question that it looks great now, and sounds like you're pretty happy with it, which is the most important thing.
