|JHM #1475 (SOLD)
|The initials apparently stand for John Hamilton McGrath, which,
judging from the article I read on Pipedia, leaves a bad taste in
some people's mouth. I believe it was Scott Thile who gave
time, no little cash, and other help to McGrath, only to get stiffed
100% as JHM refused to either acknowledge attempts by Thile
to contact him or to pay back any part of his debt. I might be
wrong regarding Thile as the wronged party, but I did see his
name in proximity to the article. I've only met Scott once, but he
seemed like a marvelously decent, upstanding fellow and I've
never heard anything but good things about him. That aside,
this is not a bad Grp. 4, with lots of straight grain, an open draw
and a barely smoked chamber. Scott can have the proceeds if
he wants. Otherwise, I'm asking just $75 for the pipe. Used.
5.6" long, bowl 1.45" tall. Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $75.
