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.

Neill I think you would also really like the Loewe Liverpool. It's perfectly proportioned and more compact than most Liverpools. A small group 4 and a great flake pipe. The Civic era Loewe Liverpool's were closer to GBD Liverpool's in proportion, but the Haymarket era Liverpool is a unique and excellent interpretation.

Thanks Bob but I have to credit Mike Myers at Walker Pipe Repair for how nice it turned out.

No on the Red, but I don't care for the McC bulk everyone compares it to. I get a strong artificial sweetener taste from it, and from Blackwoods to a slightly lesser extent.

For me, F&T Blackjack is THE red Va to beat. Love the stuff.
