Many of the marques which were once at the top of the game wound up passed from owner to owner, eventually becoming associated with briars that, while still perfectly serviceable as smokers, simply did not enjoy the same sterling reputation. So collectors keep a keen eye out for such marques' of an older vintages, like this pre-1980 Comoy's. Does it have fills? No, not one. Grain? Plenty. Does it sit well? Surely. Its Shape? Long, smooth, and lovely.
