That isn't a scratch beside the H--it's a "JHW." You have a pretty interesting pipe. It's a Jack Weinberger. It's a New Jersey brand, now defunct. Weinberger trained Curt Rollar, who worked for him for a time.

Scroll down a bit on this page and you'll see the same stamp.

This really is cool, though.

And to imagine that hugodrax had something to contribute besides calling us "derps"!
