English Estates: GBD Pedigree Unique Spot Carved Freehand

Product Number: 004-002-7891

When I first started hanging out at tobacco shops in the early-to-mid seventies (give me credit, while I wasn't yet of majority, there were far worse places I could have chosen to hang out) I was in love with the GBD pipe. In the center of most any GBD display that I encountered there was at least one "Pedigree", which makes a good deal of sense... the Pedigree was the pinnacle of the firm's lineup. Now, as I approach my dotage, when I see a GBD Pedigree come up for sale, I compare/contrast the boy/man and his ability to acquire a Pedigree. The boy had a better chance, he didn't have a two week waiting period before he could buy one.
