Royal Sovereign was an Orlik seconds line. Same catalog shapes as Orlik, just lesser grain and molded stems. Early on, lower Orlik lines had hand cut stems just like the higher lines. Not sure if this was the case with early Royal Sovereigns or not. In any event, like any Orlik they're bound to be great smokers.

Put it on eBay by itself. Depending on the condition you may get upwards of $100 for it. I've paid $15 for Loewe estates, and I've paid $200 for Loewe estates. You'll get market value by listing it on eBay, but market value depends on the condition of the pipe. Good luck!

I would contact Cadogan. There is very little Orlik info on the web.

1. all the circle represents is a pipe made for sale outside the English market

2. That's what they claimed, and yes

3. day job more often than not sucks everything good out of me and I have no energy for stuff I enjoy

Everything I know about Loewe tells me that the Mounted Series and 9xx shape numbers are Civic era production. I would check that hallmark again.

I honestly believe that he has the dates on the last two mixed up. I belive the graphic flyer is 50s era and the black and white is 1960s. This is only my opinion, based on what I know about the chronology of the make.

1 is a Cadogan from the 80s or 90s
2 is a real Loewe

all I know about them is that they were making them in the 50s and 60s and as far as I know continued making them into the Cadogan stewardship

that's a French made Loewe and I know nothing about them. Perhaps fine pipes in their own right, but not desirable. Similar to the relationship between Comoy's and Chapuis-Comoy (Chacom), except in the case of Loewe the shape catalogs are different.
