E3627-1

This pipe was a bit of a mystery for me.  Stamping on the left is “Larsen” over “Copenhagen.”  At the joint is the usual “Straight Grain” and just above that is what could be a “2” or a “9.”  I discussed the pipe at length with a well known Larsen collector and learned several things.  Apparently, before adopting the 1-10 grading system for Straight Grains, Larsen used a 1-3 grading.  My friend also advised that this was almost certainly made by Sven Knudsen based on the style of the stem.

As a postscript to the above, a Larsen with the same shape and by Sven Knudsen sold by another well known Larsen collector on ebay in April 2016 for $578. 

The pipe is in wonderful condition with no issues.  I can see a couple tiny blemishes on the finish,  The stem is free of tooth marks.  It sits nicely.
