    Sculptura was a higher grade grabow back in the day,the noname grabow could be from the lane era when they were using up pieces & parts.

    Chris, I replied to your PM on DGCF.
    Either you didn't say, or I didn't read that one was a Sculptura. That'll make it 1968.. 1978. Sculptura was a coupon pipe that was sold only through coupons from RJR in Carter Hall, PA, and George Washington tobacco. As Colorduke said... one of the best from Grabow.

    So far as the other one.. I'll stand by my other reply... ted
