English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar (52HU) (1976)

Product Number: 004-002-7081

This Dunhill sports the unusual stamping "52HU", which presumably represents "Group 5, saddle stem, Hungarian shape". Though better known as the Oom Paul, it may be understandable why an English marque like Dunhill, founded shortly after the turn of century, long used an alternative nomenclature for the distinctive jaw-hanger design - "Oom Paul" being, after all, an affectionate name for the Boer War general/Transvaal statesman Paul Kruger.
