Ferndown Bark Two Star Silver Spigot #1021115BK
I think I heard that Les Woods, the maker/owner of Ferndown
retired.  Regardless, there are few enough Silver Spigots that
this is one of the few available that I saw when looking for a
price comparison.  In fact, I'm not sure I saw any that were listed
on the sites I explored.  This is Grp. 5 size, with an open draw &
to be clear, what I would consider a high button.  It is quite light
considering the amount of silver it is sporting.  Vulcanite.  New.
5.9" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 46 grams. $375.
1920's Dunhill Shell #331137JJ (RESERVED)
The appeal of this pipe is its vintage.  It was made between
1920-'23.  If any of these is your D.O.B. & you haven't found a
birth year pipe, this may be your last chance.  Much of the nom-
enclature is covered by the repair band, but that which is visible
is also legible, so I'm confident about the age of the pipe.  The
stem is replacement, without a dot, so you know the old owner
liked this pipe for its smoking properties, not for the snob appeal
(which is why I all my Dunhills have dots).  Because the rim is
still round, it is quite possible that this pipe started out as thin-
walled.  I have smoked thin-walled pipes, and if the wood is
good, the pipe gets no hotter than a thick-walled pipe.  I don't
doubt that the chamber was reamed, but if so, it was well and
carefully done, as there is no webbing in a very clean looking
chamber.  It's a Grp. 4, although I seriously doubt Dunhill had
such a system in place nearly 100 years ago.  The blast is
classic old character-laden Shell.  It's what made the brand
what it is today.  Used.
5.6" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 30 grams. $150.

Pipe
Categories:
1977 Dunhill Root #518078
A group 5 in very good condition, with slight wear on the inner rim
and one tooth mark onthe bottom of the stem.  Shape # is 51091 &
the draw is wide-open and the nomenclature clear & crisp.  Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $275.
1990 Ashton 3X Sovereign #518173BK
Whatever "3X" might mean on paper, in the reality of my fist, it
means Grp. 5.  Am I imagining things, or does the Apple shape,
when done well, suggest "smoke me" more strongly than other
pipes?  This is one of Bill Taylor's beauties and will stand in
commemoration of his talents and his legacy to us.  Unsmoked.
5.8" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $425.
1997 Dunhill Dress #218235BK
Boy, I'd love a web site full of this style pipe.  No issues to deal
with regarding the color, only one side photographed.  No
questions about fills.  Right up my alley.  This says it's a Grp. 4.
I think it's a 3.  No matter, it's a simple enough pipe upon which
to make a decision; either you want a Dress black or no.  New.
5.5" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $450.
1937 Barling's Ye Olde Wood 51800
It's nice stemwork, but it's not original stemwork, so I have no
idea how to price this gem.  The bowl is in very good cond., with
just a touch of wear on the inner rim.  The nomenclature on
both stem and silver are in exc., crisp condition.  The letter
revealing the date is a "B" and the initials of the Barling boys
are also on the silver.  It is a Grp. 4 in size, the draw is wide
open, so it should smoke great.  All that remains is for you to
find an old Barling's stem with logo somewhat intact.  Used.
5.9" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 36 grams. $185.
1890 BBB #530104SR  (SOLD 7/19/17)
This graceful pipe has a threaded horn tenon, which accounts
for the fact that the stem sits just a very little past perfectly
straight.  (The photo makes it seem much more severe than is
the case.)  The condition is excellent and the draw wide-open.
5.6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 48 grams. Price: $340
Comoy's Specimen Straight Grain #33133 (SOLD 6/21/17)
Am I mistaken, or is the Specimen Straight Grain supposed to
be a high end Comoy's?  Well, this one isn't.  It has at least 2
fills that I can see with my myopic eyes, and that bald spot,
as seen in the bottom right photo, does exist (although not
with as much start contrast as the photo shows).  Also, the "C"
logo on the stem looks bad.  The pipe itself is in exc. cond &
the stem is without bite marks.  Grp. 3 size, or small Grp. 4.
5.35" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 31 grams. $45.
Barling's Make Ye Olde Wood #26753
The bowl, the rim, the chamber, the nomenclature are all in
exc. cond.  The shape # is a 3 digit 233 and the size is
stamped as EL.  It's about the size and shape of a Dunhill LB.  
The draw is wide-open, but the stem is almost assuredly new,
and the stem logo is definitely newly minted.   Vulcanite. Used
6" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $225.
Ferndown 3 Star Reo #518181 (SOLD 6/12/17)
.You don't want this pipe because of the grain; you want it be-
cause of the bling, aka, the silver.  We are almost all of us at-
tracted to bright, shiny things.  So why, you ask, did I not shine
the silver before photographing the pipe?  No comment.  The
size is Grp. 6 and the cond. is exc.  although I do now see one
shallow tooth mark on the bottom of the stem.  The draw is
open.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
6.25" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 75 grams. $265.
Pre-Transition Barling EXEXEL #824032SF N/A
Grp. 6 in size, and in good cond. (which I believe to be original...
I looked carefully at the button and those of old Barlings I have)
with a nice, unburnt rim.  The drawback is a nomenclature that
is visible, but quite thin, having been buffed down.  The shape #
is 789 and the draw is wide-open.  Used.
6.25" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 51 grams. $225.
Pre-Transition Barling's YOW EXEXEL #615115
I don't think that this is an original stem.  It doesn't have a logo &
the fit with the shank isn't seamless.  There are tooth indents on
the top & bottom of the stem.  The bowl & shank are in v. good
cond., and the nomenclature (it is shape #276) is intact, if a bit
dull from buffing.  It is a true EXEXEL in size, and there are  
dings on bowl.  Used.
6.5" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 58 grams. $175.
G. Huybrecht London Castle #61543CO
Huybrecht had a long career as an English pipe maker,
keeping a low profile & selling to shops like Tranter, which has
a store in both Bath & Oxford.  The styles are traditional and
the briar is fill-free.  This one is Grp. 5 in size with a wide-open
draw and a vulcanite stem.  Unsmoked.
5.75" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams.  $150.
2004 Dunhill Shell #518204CO (RESERVED)
The only way I could tell the year on this pipe was by the very
small dating letter on the silver band.  Nor does the heavy case
in which it comes indicate any special event this pipe is com-
memorating.  It's a Grp. 3 and has been very lightly smoked.
The worst part of the pipe is the oxidized 2nd stem, which I can,
and will, make shiny.  Easy.  Used.
5.1" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 30 grams. $245
Barling Guinea Grain #11283
A touch of wear is visible at one part of the inner bowl rim,
and the logo on the stem is freshly stamped.  The "Barling"
is in script; family era Guinea Grains employ a "Barling's,"
with an apostrophe 's'.  The 4 digit shape number is 5294
so the conclusion is that this is post family production.   It
appears to be a Grp. 4 in size with a wide-open draw.  Used.
5.25" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight:1oz., 27 grams. $75.
George Huybrecht London Castle #61548CO
I am more than tempted to call this a 'quaint' shape, although I
don't know what that means, although to me it means an old,
English-style shape such as produced by the Ben Wade pipes
produced in their Leeds factory, or some of the old BBBs.  This
pipe's shape is hardly represented by current pipe makers.  The
thick shank and somewhat bulbous bowl suggest a Rhodesian.
Wide-open draw, vulcanite stem & a large Grp. 4 size.  New.
5.25" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 60 grams. $150.
1968 Dunhill LBS Root #21863
The carbon on the rim looks far worse in the photos, I think,
than it does in person.  There is little wear on the rim.  The
poorest part of the pipe is the buffed down nomenclature, but
even there, every letter and number is legible.  The stem is in
excellent condition, and the cross-grain is pretty good.  Used.
6.25" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 57 grams. $265.
1982 Dunhill 3 Star Dead Root #218297BK (RESERVED)
The pipe bowl is in near-new cond.  I can't detect any sign of
use on the inner rim, for instance.  For some reason, the stem is
not in the same condition, with tooth marks on the top and most
prominently, on the bottom.  they're not deep marks and can
probably be sanded out, but they're certainly visible.  The nom-
enclature appears to have been weakly stamped in the first
instance, although everything is visible.  It's a small pipe and
possibly no larger than a Group 3 in size, or a small 4.  Used.
5.3" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 29 grams. $775.
Charatan Supreme #218270BK (RESERVED)
I have to start off with a negative disclosure about this pipe
because the positives speak for themselves, which includes, but
is not limited to, the straight grain that goes all around the bowl
and does not drop off at the front (which I forgot to photograph)
as do so many straight grains.  The bad thing is that deep tooth
mark on the bottom of the original DC stem.  It does not go
through the vulcanite, but is too deep to simply sand out.  The
rest, including the nomenclature, including the "L" is all fine.
It's about a Group 6 in size, with a large tobacco chamber. Used.
6" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 57 grams. $250.
1999 XX Ashton Pebble Grain #518305
XX makes this a Grp. 5 in size.  The blast is very good & the
draw is wide-open.  While the nomenclature pinpoints the date
of production as 1999, the date on the sterling ferrule says
2000.  The pipe is unsmoked.  
5.75" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $375.
2000 Ashton XX Sovereign #1021126TF
Nicely darkened by someone who loved smoking this pipe, and
also cared enough about it to take very good care to keep it in
fine condition, with but a touch of wear on the inner rim of the
chamber.  The stem is bite-mark free and the draw is open.
Don't worry...no aromatics used here.  Ashtonite stem. Used.
5.65" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $225.
1986 Dunhill Bruyere ODA #21858
No question that the rim is scorched, but it is not badly worn.  
The rest of the pipe, including the stem, is in exc. cond., and
when this pipe says "ODA," it means it.  It is large.  For a
Bruyere, it has very good cross grain.  The ODA shape is 835
and while the nomenclature is a bit buffed down, every letter&
number is clearly legible.  Used.
6 5/8" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 3 oz., 86 grams. $235.
Pre-Transition Barling's Special EXEL #101470AG
The pipe shape # is 447 and the residue of the original stem is
visible.  Also, the cond. is exc., with a very clean stem and bowl
rim.  If there is any drawback to this pipe, I think that the thick-
ness of the wall is not in proper proportion the the diameter of
the chamber.  I would guess that the pipe might thus smoke
hot.  Yet, the pipe is used and there is no hot, or dark, spots on
bowl, so one can presume it does not smoke hot.  
5.5" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $195
BBB #83024SR
The stamping on the band does not add up to a hallmark date,
so I don't know the exact year of this pipe, but the hole at the
end of the stem indicates a very old pipe, as does the sold
"BBB" stamped on the shank, without any other identifying info.
It is a Grp. 2 in size.  Other than the wear on the rim, the pipe is
in excellent cond.  You can see the diamond outline of the BBB
logo on the stem, but the letters have been buffed off. Used.
5" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 28 grams. $135.
1995 Dunhill Amber Root Group 2 #218219BK
This seems more like a Group 3 in size to me, & to the Dunhill
template I use to judge these things, but that aside, it's a sweet
pipe, with a brindle stem, a wide-open draw and pretty good
cross grain. a flake-centric pipe?  Maybe. Unsmoked.
5.1" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 3/4 oz., 22 grams. $415
Peterson Filter #331155PJ
As the shank is fairly thin, I was surprised to see the "filter"
name on the shank, so I took the pipe apart and the tenon can
take what appears to be a 6mm filter.  It's a Grp. 4 size with a
well open draw, esp. considering the P-lip.  Happily, this
chamber is uncoated, which might be a rarity for Peterson.  The
grain is solid all around, although the carving could be a
distraction for some.  But it looks like a good smoke.  New.
5.7" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $65.
Patent Number Sasieni Four Dot  #218116 (RESERVED)
Old English-loving pipe fans of this site, & I like to believe they
are legion, should begin to drool a little at this old Sasieni.  The
condition is excellent, with a mark-free stem & a rim showing
very little, if any, wear.  The draw is wide-open, and because of
the necessary length for the tall bowl, I don't think the Edgeware
is a common shape.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
5.5" long, bowl 2.3" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 46 grams. $235.
1967 Dunhill LBS Root Briar #416169SR
The cross grain and Bird's Eye on this pipe are terrific, and the
condition of the pipe is very good, with only a little wear on the
inner rim of the chamber.  There is also a tooth mark on the
bottom of the stem.  It is a Group 4 in size, but it is still large.
5.9" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 46 grams. $325.
Pre-Transition Barling's Y.O.W. #331161
The rim of this pipe looks as though someone banged out the
tobacco on a bed of pins.  It's the kind of condition that can be
remedied without compromising the original integrity of the pipe.
There is also a visible ding that can be seen in the photo
showing the front of the bowl (bottom right pic) & some very
minor scratches. Overall, I'd call this pipe in very good cond.
The size is either large Grp. 3 or small Grp. 4.  Of note, &
pointed out to my by expert Barling historian Jesse Silver, is the
fact that the Reg. # on the bottom of the stem pinpoints this
pipe as having been made between 1946/47 & 1950.  Used.
5.2" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 34 grams. $225.
Sasieni Four Dot Pat. #  Edgeware #425175
The nomenclature is not crisp, but it is all legible with a little
effort, including the patent numbers.  The cond. is exc., but the
dots do seem large, so I am not certain it is an original stem,
although if it isn't, somebody did a stellar job on the dots.  Nice
cross grain...better than in the previous Edgeware that was for
sale on this site.  Wide-open draw.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
5.5" long, bowl 2.3" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $225.
Dunhill 100th Duke St. Anniversary  #518209CO (SOLD 6/17
You should get this limited edition Dunhill (#100 of 100) if
only because purple is not a color that comes up often on pipe
web sites.  Along with this 2007 Shell with a windshield (Grp. 4
size) comes a copy of "Our Family Business" by Mary Dunhill.
The pipe is unsmoked and the book doesn't look like it's been
read.  While the dimensions of the pipe are not critical,
methinks, the weight of the entire package, which includes a
velvety covering for the purple case, is over 2 1/2 lbs. $995
Royal Comoy's #33191
I forgot to photograph the other side of the bowl, but it's fine...
not as good straight grain, but certainly good flame grain & no
bald spots.  You get a view of it when I try to show the front of
the bowl in the pic on the bottom right.  It's a Grp. 4 size & as
you can see, the stem is a replacement and thus there is no "C"
on it.  The cond. is very good, if not excellent and the draw is
open. It's old enough to have "US Pat." & a number on the un-
photographed side, along with a round "Made in England" but
no "London." (buffed down, but not out).  Used.
5.5" long., bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 38 grams. $75.
Ashton LX Sovereign #102164BK
The pipe is in exc. cond., but maybe the first thing to know about it
is that the front of the bowl has much better grain than shows in
this head-on photo.  I guess it's because of reflective light.  I think
the year is 1997, but the "17" which would indicate that year is
stamped in an unusual spot on the shank, so I'm not sure. Used.
6" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 2.75 oz., 77 grams. $350
Sasieni 8 Dot "Marlborough" #824043SF
The original stem and dots are in exc. cond.,  the inner rim is
slightly worn and the nomenclature is dull, but entirely legible,
including every digit of the Pat. number, the fish tail under the
Sasieni name and the quotation marks on either side of the
shape name.  Typical Grp. 4 size and wide-open draw.  Used.
5.2" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 32 grams. $155.
George Huybrecht London Castle #61560CO
Again, what I would call a 'quaint' shape in a Grp. 4 sized pipe.
The draw is open & the simple nomenclature says "London
Castel" & "G. Huybrecht."  The briar is without fills & with a flat
bottom, it sits solidly.  A handsome, inexpensive piece of
British pipe making history.  Unsmoked.
5.75" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $150.
Comoy's Blue Riband #425194
No teeth marks on the original, 3part "C" stem and only a few
minor dings on the rim & on the bowl keeping this from being in
exc. cond.  The nomenclature is buffed down, but not entirely
out and you can make out the name and grade.  Used.
5.4" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $150.
1989 Dunhill Shell #518116CO (SOLD 6/3/17)
The owner of this pipe handed it to me at our Pipe & Pint a
few weeks ago and I noticed what looked like a lot of crackle in
the chamber.  So, I sat there and gave it a smoke test.  It did not
smoke remotely hot, although I did smoke it slowly, but not that
slowly.  Also, we were outside.  Also, it smoked very well.  It's a
good tasting pipe.  My point is that I do not think it
has a real problem...but I'm happy to give this pipe a 100%
return guarantee if it burns out.  Your purchase is risk-free.
It's a large Grp. 4 in size, shape #4103.  Used.
5.6" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams. $95.
2005 Dunhill Xmas Pipe #518216CO (SOLD 6/27/17)
The pipe comes with a gold band that is hallmarked, but I can't
read the tiny stamping to see how many carats.  No matter.
As it is shape #4325, I will assume it is a Grp. 4 in size,
although it's always hard to tell with these oval bowls. This is
pipe #305 out of a run of 400, which is stamped on the pipe.
It is unsmoked.
6.25" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 35 grams. $895.
1923 Dunhill Bruyere "Inner Tube" #117178PN
FYI, this pipe looks to have been very expertly restored.  
Nothing wrong with that, just bringing it to your attention.  The
nomenclature is almost all legible, the only exception being
some of the numbers of the Pat. #.  Still, the last digits are quite
clear and no year other than 1923 makes sense.  On one side
of the shank is a Capital A and Dunhill over London.  On the
other side, "Inner Tube,"  the Pat. #, ending with a /12 and then
a small, underlined 3.  It's a large Grp. 3 in size.  Used.
5.8" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 35 grams. $450.
1980 Dunhill Bruyere #117100
Group 3, with a shape # of 3212.  Because the pipe is un-
smoked, & has a short, straight shank, there is not much to say
about it, unless it had some negatives, like a clogged draw or
couldn't take a pipe cleaner through to the chamber, neither of
which is the case.   New.
5.25" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 oz. 27 grams. $325
1981 Comoy's Xmas Pipe #425200
There is a tooth indent on the bottom of the stem, but it is not
deep.  Two marks on the top of the stem are insignificant in
terms of functionality.  It's a Grp. 4 in size & while the pinch
stem is nice, the "C" is not the 3 part kind.  Used.
4.7" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $50.
Charatan Selected #61560 (RESERVED)
An exceptionally clean, crisp version of a Lane era Selected,
with nomenclature on shank & stem in exc. cond.  There are
tooth indents on the top & bottom of the stem, but they're so
small and shallow that you can see, but not even feel them.  
Grp. 6 in size, with my thumb easily fitting into the chamber
(9/10" diameter).  The draw is wide-open.  Used.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2.5 oz., 71 grams. $245.
Dunhill Patent #117182PN
All of the nomenclature is quite legible.  The only issue is in
dating this to an exact year.  There is no number after the D in
England, so we are all reduced to Loring's guide, which gives 3
years as possibilities, 1947, 1953, `954.  You'll have to take
your pick and I choose '54 because that's the year the N.Y.
Baseball Giants swept Cleveland in the World Series.  Grp. 4, in
exc. cond., with a slight tooth mark on the top of the stem. Used
5.4" long, bowl 1.95" tall. Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $425.
A Dunhill Christmas Carol   #518221CO (SOLD 6/27/17)
The pipe is stamped 5108, but it might actually be a Grp. 6 in
size.  It's in near-new condition, having been barely smoked.
The figural tamper is Marley's ghost, with all the locks that he
forged for himself in life.  The front cover of the case says "A
Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.  Pipe dimensions are
6 1/8" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 67 grams. $895
Comoy's Sandblast #518176 (SOLD 6/12/17)
The cond. is very good or even excellent, with a clean & round
inner chamber rim & a stem that is bite-mark free.  A three part
"C" & a "Made in London England" that is not in a circle but is
rather in 2 straight lines.  So, I don't know how old this pipe is.
To my eyes, the stem button appears to be late 50's or 60's.
The blast is superior.  The draw is open.  Grp. 4 size.  Used.
4.6" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 45 grams.  $65.
Ashton LX Old Church #51893CO
Handsome & large with a silver ferrule that has both a sterling
hallmark and an "A" on it for Ashton.  The nomenclature has
something unique to me...a "JC" for Jim Craig, I'm sure.  This
is a Bill Ashton era pipe, but Jim was the working apprentice at
the time, as I understand it.  My thumb fits easily into the
chamber.  The draw is open and the pipe is unsmoked.  New.
7" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 2 7/8 oz., 80 grams. $375
1933 Dunhill PO #61565 (SOLD 6/28/17)
Great cond. for such a beautiful, old pipe.  The nomenclature is
all legible, although a couple of the numbers require, for aged
me, a lens to discern.  There are tooth marks on the top & bot.
of the stem, but not at all deep or compromising.  The draw is
open & the inside of the chamber shows no wear.  Fine blast.
5" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight:  1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $425.
1970 Dunhill ODA 835 Root #21869 (RESERVED)
There is some charring on the inner rim of the chamber but
nothing that jeopardizes the integrity of the bowl or tobacco
chamber.  The stem is in exc. cond., but the nomenclature is
buffed way down, although entirely legible with no letter or
numeral obliterated.  The draw is open.  Vulcanite  stem.  Used.
6.5" long, bowl 2.35" tall.  Weight: 2.5 oz., 72 grams. $225.
2002 Dunhill Shell #51888CO (SOLD)
Grp. 3 shape # 3108 in like-new condition.  The pipe has a
good blast & open draw.  With a little twist a pipe cleaner goes
to the chamber bottom.  Used.
5.15" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $150.
Upshall P #425112 (RESERVED)
So what if it's ugly & hasn't the grain quality of a bad Tilshead
The draw is wide-open, it's in exc. cond. & it's large (Grp. 6).
6.5" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 52 grams. Used. $75
1926 Dunhill Shell #52599
This very early Dunhill blast is evocative of something I just can't
quite name.  It is certainly unique.  The pipe is in great condition
& if the stem isn't original (and I'm not saying it isn't) it is quite
old, as well.  The draw is open & the rim is crisp & clean.  The
nomenclature is legible, so I'm confident that 1926 is correct.
5.65" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 7/8 oz., 24 grams. Used. $450
Northern Briars Rox Cut Regal #518130 (SOLD 6/27/17)
There is a little tooth chatter on the stem that will probably buff
out before I mail this pipe, and the inner rim shows some carbon
residue, but the overall condition is very good.  The gap
between the stem & shank is the result of me not pushing the
stem in far enough prior to photographing, and not a condition
flaw.  Open draw & Grpl 5 size.  Vulcanite brindle stem. Used.
5.85" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 68 grams. $85.
Peterson's Patent System #518108 (SOLD 6/1/17)
I am offended by the deep tooth indentation on the bottom of
the stem and the marks on the top of the stem.  They sit there &
mock me.  As revenge, I am going to make this otherwise fine-
conditioned pipe available at an insultingly low price.  That will
teach it a lesson and humble it.  The ferrule is sterling and the
nomenclature states that the pipe was made in Ireland, not "The
Republic of Ireland."  That's typical Peterson B.S. & hype, of
course.  It's not an old pipe, just a replica...maybe.  Lousy draw
due to P-lip.  What's new?  Price, all inclusive, in U.S. $35.
Pre-Rep. Peterson's Premier  #61571 (SOLD 6/27/17)
"Made in Ireland," and shape #02, with a silver "P" in the stem,
which probably signifies the "Premier" designation.  There
shallow tooth indents on the top & bottom of the stem, which,
because of the standard P-lip nicely inhibits an open, smooth
draw.  But hey, it's a Peterson.  It has good size...at least Grp. 5
and maybe 6.  The nomenclature is buffed down, but all is
quite legible.  Ste stem is vulcanite and the pipe is used.
4.4" long, bowl 2.3" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 64 grams. $85.
