Danish Estates: Preben Holm Hand Cut Smooth Freehand (6) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-001-6184

Now that my pulse has returned to (vaguely) normal.. Preben Holm pipes which bear a single grading number in a circle, represent Holm's earliest 'Hand Cuts', a period that most estimate between 1968 and 1970. Prior to handling this amazing jewel, the highest grade that I had encountered was a '5'. Once (just once) I saw a smoked '7' offered across the pond for a price that could feed a decent sized village for a month (mild exaggeration, but you get the idea). Here we have a '6', featuring both the conservancy of shape that one would expect from the earliest days, as well as a grain worthy of such a lofty grade designation. Forty (plus) years young, utterly unsmoked and it comes with both the original presentation box and sleeve. For Pete's sake, don't let this one get away.
