Like Troy I really like the old Yello-Bole pipes. These are a good representation of some of the older one. Well done Troy!
Got this lot off Ebay a short time back and finally got them finished.
All were in pretty good shape and just needed some basic cleaning,buff ,wax and stem sanding .No major repairs.
Pipe #1 KB&B 1930’s Yello -Bole #2050B bulldog
I did have to clean this one pretty good and steam out as many dings as i could. The stinger was stuck bad and completely stopped up.
Even though I’m not much on bulldog shapes this is a first year#2050B model and its a fine smoker, so its still a pretty neat pipe to me.
50B Medium bulldog, round shank 1936-1972
Since the pipe is stamped “Honey Cured Briar” and after 1936 they went to “Cured With Real Honey” this means it can only be a year 1936 pipe.
