Rare Kirsten "S" Prototype. Kirsten made this style pipe in all four sizes of the day. They are very hard to find and the S Size being the hardest of all to find. A very cool and rate piece of Kirsten history from the late 50's or very early 60's.
They were experimenting with putting the ramrod in the front valve of the pipe, a very cool idea and I think a better smoking pipe.
I believe this pipe is unsmoked, if it has been, likely only once or twice.
This is a Straight 3/8 inch ID, 3-3/4 inch long shank Kirsten Tobacco pipe.
Left side of aluminum body is stamped KIRSTEN. Bottom is stamped PATS. & PATS. PEND MADE IN U.S.A. S.
The aluminum body is polished back to new finish.
The bit is perfect, no bite or tooth marks.
A Kirsten bowl I believe to be unsmoked.
End cap/valve/ramrod is perfect.
Length: 5-1/2 inches. Bowl height-bottom of bowl to top of bowl: 1 inch. Bowl width at widest point: 1-1/4 inches. Chamber width: 13/16 - inch. depth: approx. 7/8 inch.
Shipping: Will be shipped within 2 business days of payment. Item will be packed VERY carefully to assure it arrives in the same condition it is in now.
