I bought a Dr. Grabow on ebay. Twenty-eight bucks. Well, it arrived today, and I think I hit the jackpot. It turns out to be a Linkman Select Grain bulldog with saddle bit, in excellent condition. The serial number is 84XX. Can anyone tell me how old the pipe is? 1940's? I have cleaned it up and smoked two bowls. Half way through the third now. (I know. Give it a rest.) It draws and stays lit beautifully. The taste is still not good, but improving. It had been reamed almost to the bare briar. It looks nicer than the pic shows because I have since cleaned it, polished it a bit, and filled the spade emblem on the stem with white oil paint. Should it be blue? In any case, Yippee, yippee, yahoo.
