The box and paperwork is in very good condition, no splits on any corners or the top and bottom.
The aluminum shank and finned bowl cup are perfect and still polished to a mirror bright finish.
The original bit is perfect. The original briar bowl is very unique, there is a small ledge inside that a round perforated disk fits down onto. The bowl itself lightly presses down into the finned aluminum cup.
The end valve is perfect and also unique. There is a small band to the inside that you can turn to adjust an outside air flow through the pipe, close completely or the amount of outside air you want.
