Peterson's Donegal Rocky #117271 (SOLD 2/23/18)
Grp. 5 size in exc. cond., with crisp rim, bite-free stem & a
sterling band with a hallmark that indicates a 1980 production.
The "P" logo is buffed down, but it's all there & legible.  Used.
5.35" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 45 grams. $35.
Peterson Flame Grain #22757
The pipe deserves the "Flame Grain" designation, and you can
verify that by looking at the rich Bird's Eye pattern on the bottom
of the bowl.  The bowl shape is that of a gentle Volcano.  There
are two small fills, but I needed a lens to find them (I thought
they must be there somewhere).  The cond. is exc., and the
draw is open.  Grp. 5 size.  Used.
5.8" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 55 grams. $45.
GBD Sablé Standard #11797AG (SOLD 3/6/18)
Everything is wonderful about this pipe except for one feature
that will create a very good deal for someone...on the bottom of
the shank is a little hole, for lack of a better term, that should
have been filled, but wasn't.  it doesn't go through & having
tested it with a straight pin (the hole is quite small) I find it is
extremely shallow.  it is unlikely to do anything but sit there for
decades.  But it is there and must be acknowledged.  Used.
5" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 53 grams. $45.
Peterson's 1909 Reproduction #22747 (RESERVED)
Large enough to register as a Grp 6 size.  Other than a few
little marks on the rim, the condition is exc., with the pipe having
undergone very few smokes.  The draw is happily open here &
the 1909 stamp on the band is belied by the 1995 hallmark
on the band.  Used.
5.4" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 61 grams. $75.
Ashton XX Pebble Grain #1112127
Silly me, I forgot to photograph the other side of the bowl.  No
matter, really, on this well grained sandblast.  The briar is
clearly hard and the blast displays tight grain all around.  The
cond. is exc. for both stem, bowl & chamber.  It's a Grp. 4 in size
& the draw is open.  I think it's from 1992, 'cause there's a "12"
after the "England," but there's also an extra 2 before the "12.
5.75" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grans. Used. $165
1992Dunhill Shell #1214190CO
The condition is near-new and it's a Grp. 5 in size, although
being a smallish style, it still isn't a large pipe.  Used.
5.85" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 57 grams. $165.
Peterson's Standard System #1214229 (SOLD)
Shape # 314, and also a Grp. 3 in size.  The condition of this
pipe is excellent & maybe better than that, the draw is quite
open.  There are fills, but this is simply a standard Pete &
doesn't aspire to greatness.  Used.
4.75" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 47 grams. $35.
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. $275.
Peterson's Deluxe #1112196AG (SOLD)
Shape # 3S & the "S" might mean small as this is a Grp. 3 in
size.  The cond. is exc.and the pipe has good cross grain, as
you can see in the photos.  The silver hallmark, a stylized "N"
appears to be from 1979.  Used.
5" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 47 grams. $75.
Pulvers' Prior Briar
P.O. Box 61146
Palo Alto, CA  

(650) 965-7403
Pre-Transition Barling's EL #21431
This pipe is in such good condition, that it's a shame that it was two
major cosmetic flaws.  The one issue is the damage to the outside
of the rim as pictured on the top right.  Obviously, the damage
done had nothing to do with the smoking of the pipe.  Secondly,
the stem which is probably original based on what I can see & feel,
does not have the Barling's logo, indicating it was buffed off.  It's a
Grp. 3 or small 4 in size.  The nomenclature is clean and crisp and
the shape # is 329.  This will smoke like a good, old Barling.  Used.
5.5" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 28 grams. $150.
1990 Ashton 3X Sovereign #518173BK (SOLD 2/19/18)
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. $365.
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.
Sasieni Four Dot Natural #8966JS
A Grp. 5 family era "Buckingham."  The "Natural" designation is
rare enough to have been acquired only 5 times by a collector
who had over 300 Sasienis at one time.    The cond. is very
good, with just some carbon residue on the inner making it less
than perfect.  There are some very minor dings on the bowl, as
befits a pipe of this vintage.  The stem has no more than minor
tooth chatter (to be buffed out, I'm sure). Open draw.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 49 grams. Used. $195
1960 Dunhill Tanshell ES #117234 (SOLD 3/12/18)
the pipe shows the deep, craggy blast that older Dunhills are
prized for.  The cond. is exc., although a little wear from normal
use is evident, such as the button, which is slightly buffed down
and the nomenclature, which is not as crisp as it would be if
the pipe were right out of the box.  But the blast is not worn
down, the inner rim is not charred and the stem is bite-free.
6.5" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $450.
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.
Upshall P #111278
This is a large pipe with an inner chamber diameter that is just
shy of 1".  The cond. is exc., with an open draw & construction
that makes it easy for a cleaner to go right through to the bowl.
The vulcanite stem is original, with the "JU" logo on the top &
nothing more than very minor tooth chatter on the stem bottom.
6.5" long, bowl 2.6" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 55 grams. Used.  $110.

Willmer Extra #17251
No fills, but there is a spot of carving on the bottom of the bowl.
Grp. 5 size, in very good cond., with no marks on the stem &
just a a touch of wear on the rim.  This appears to be an early
Willmer, before the company's products began to become
inferior.  If it's old briar, it will smoke very well.  Used.
5.15" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 54 grams. $40.
Peterson's Premier #108260
There is carbon residue on the rim, but if there is any actual
wear, it is minute.  The size is either large Grp. 3 or small 4.
There are very noticeable teeth marks on top & bottom of stem,
but none of them threaten to go through & compromise the
integrity of the stem, which has an inlaid gold "P."  Used
5.95" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 31 grams. $55.
Ferndown One Star Root #22711 (SOLD 3/6/18)
Other than a touch of wear on one spot of the inner rim, the
pipe is in exc. cond. with an open draw and an ebonite stem.  
Grp. 5 size & original, sterling, "L&JS" band. Used.
5.65" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $145.
Astley's #22787 (SOLD 3/11/18)
The draw is open & a cleaner goes right through.  The stem is
vulcanite, it's a Grp. 5 size, or at least the chamber is, and the
condition is simply "new."  As Astley's closed some years ago,
the vintage can also be a consideration.  New.
5.65" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $95.
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. $145.
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.
Dunhill Shell Shape #10882CO
The shape # is 3205, so this must have sold as a Grp. 3 in size,
but it is clearly a full-fledged 4, so right away, you're a leg up if
you get this Dunhill.  In fact, I can almost fit my thumb into the
chamber.  The year of production, stamped after the "England"
is blurry, but I'm going to guess it's a 1998.  At any rate, it's
from the '90's and is unsmoked, with the tube still in the shank.
Even with the tube in, the draw is wide-open.  Thick walls &
nice, pronounced blast, too.  New.
5.65" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 37 grams. $315
Peterson Standard System #227129
Grp 5 size, or even a bit larger, with a clean, wear-free rim.  The
stem has a small tooth indent on the top & a very shallow mark
on the bottom.  The shape # is 307.  There are small fills on the
bowl.  Used.
6" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 68 grams. $40.
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. $315.
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 aromatics used here.  Ashtonite stem. Used.
5.65" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $210.
Ashton 25th Anniversary Pebble Grain #1214149CO SOLD
As you can see, this Grp. 5 size Billiard comes in a fitted case &
is adorned with a sterling band that proclaims this to be both
the 25th anniversary release (1983-2008) & a limited edition.
The pipe is unsmoked & has a wide-open draw as well as a
tight blast.  If it matters, the pipe sits up on its flat bottom.  New.
5.8" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 53 grams. $345.
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. $175
BBB #89-024SR
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 (RESERVED)
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. $365
1986 Peterson Gold Spigot #117176AG
Grp. 5 in excellent condition with an open draw and no marks on
the stem at all.  Fine, deep blast and well hallmarked.  Interest-
ingly, there is no nomenclature stamped on the briar.  Used.
6.25" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 53 grams. $325.
Peterson "Made in Ireland" #22706 (RESERVED)
OK, I lied, it's not really a made in Ireland pipe.  Well, I didn't lie, I
fudged.  It is, in fact, stamped "Made in Ireland" but I'm rather
certain it's a repro, a nice one, with a "1905" stamped on the
sterling band, which is, no doubt, the year that the original pipe
with this shape was produced.  Anyhow, this one is in very good
cond., with just a touch of wear on one spot of the rim.  It's a Grp.
5 size and there's no "P" on the stem, as per the original.  Used.
5.3" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 55 grams. $75.
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.
Charatan Selected #111259
With a little wear visible on the inner rim, you can't say that this
is in excellent condition, but that wear can't detract from the
very solid nature of the pipe.  Let's call it substantial.  The
chamber walls are plenty thick enough for the chamber
diameter & the shank is good & strong.  It does have the Lane
"L" on it and the draw is open.  Grp. 6 in size.  Used.
5.65" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 62 grams. $145.
Sasieni 4 Dot Natural #22762 (SOLD 3/11/18)
With good cross grain and in exc. cond., this clean Grp. 4  
Sasieni has to be a fine deal for a smoker wanting a quality
pipe at a very reasonable price.  The "Natural" designation is
not all that frequent with Sasieni, so it usually commands a
higher price than dark stained models.  Open draw & with a
little twist, the cleaner went to the chamber.  Used.
5.4" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $65.
BBB Own Make #117230 (SOLD 2/19/18)
Unsmoked & Grp. 4 size with open draw & comfortable, flat
ebonite stem.  It does have 2 fills.  The band is sterling and has
the 3B logo on it.  Unsmoked.
5.4" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 28 grams. $50.
Royal Comoy's #1112-91
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. $310.
BBB Golden Legacy #22767 (SOLD 3/12/18)
The band is 14K GF, which must mean "gold fill" so don't get too
excited.  It is original, with the BBB logo on it.  This pipe has
more than a touch of that early 20th century English shape,
which I saw in the old Leeds-made Ben Wades.  I love those
pipes and that "stout" kind of shaping, for lack of a better word.
The cond. here is exc., & the draw is open.  Although it is not
tight, the bowl is covered with Bird's Eye grain, and cross grain,
too, of course.  If there are any fills, I can't find them.  No BBB
on the stem, though.  Used.
5.6" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $45.
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. $145.
Larrysson #89222FT
Made in 2009, this pipe is in exc. cond.  It hints strongly at
Charatan influence, most noticeably in its design excesses.  
Despite thick walls, the tobacco chamber is very narrow, just
over 6/10" making it difficult to fill the bowl.  Well, difficult for me
because the pipe has been smoked, although not a lot. Used.
5.6" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 58 grams. $225.
Harcourt Hall Mark #22797
A bit of irony here.  The pipe's grade is "Hall Mark" yet it
originally came with no hall-marked silver band.  Yet, with a thin
shank, it was going to eventually require a band, either to keep
a fracture from worsening, or as a prophylactic measure.  I'll let
you figure out which is the case 'cause I can't see a fissure, but
my eyes suck.  The pipe is in exc. cond., with crisp clean rim &
no bite marks on the stem & a good blast. Grp. 5 size. Used.
5.75" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $35.
BBB 7 Day Set #615276
If you were earlier, you could have gotten this set for $50.  But
that was about 80 years ago.  They are about Grp. 3 in size, at
least 3 are most definitely unsmoked & maybe none have been
smoked, which is to say that they are all in exc. cond. and many
still have their pristine metal rods still running through the stem
& shank.  The blasts are called "BBB Ripple Own Make. $995.
1923 Dunhill Bruyere "Inner Tube" #1112-178PN
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.
"1910" Peterson 's Dublin #22724
Ah, we know it's not a 1910 pipe, but it was made to look like
one and does the job well, except for the 1995 hallmark on the
sterling ferrule.  It has a good, open draw and there is just a bit
of wear on the inner rim that kekeps the cond. from being called
'excellent.'  It also says "Made in Ireland" on the shank to further
that illusion of being a Pre-Republic pipe.  Used.
5.25" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 47 grams. $75.
Peterson's Premier #121464
a large Grp. 5 high grade Peterson with a gold "P" logo in the
side of the stem.  Shape 106S.  The walls of the bowl are thick
and the rim is clean and crisp with one minor exception.  The
stem is bite-mark free.  I do see a little ding on the top of the
bowl in the top left photo.  The poor draw is standard for a P-lip
and should not be a deterrent to Peterson devotees.  Used.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 46 grams. $75.
Sasieni Four Dot Natural "Moorgate" #22729 SOLD 3/14)
Someone was a little rough on the rim, so very minor scratches
appear there, along with similarly trivial tooth marks on the top &
bottom of the stem.  But this is an old, family era Sasieni, so
slight examples of use are expected and acceptable.  All is
original & the "Natural" is not a common finish, even with the
Four Dot grade.  The draw is open & the stem ebonite. Used.
5.2" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 45 grams. $115.
1969 Dunhill Shell ODA 848 #1112153
The carbon residue on the rim removes this pipe from being in
contention for the 'excellent condition' designation.  Then there
is the fact that the pipe was so well loved that hands have worn
down the sharp edges of the sand blast, which you might
consider a good thing.  The stem button is also worn down,
although the stem is bite mark free.  That large tobacco
chamber is also in fine fettle.  The nomenclature, too, is worn,
but all is there and is legible.  This was not a neglected pipe.
6.5" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 52 grams. $195.
1982 Dunhill Shell 6109 #22719  (SOLD 3/5/18)
Because of the length of the shank, I presume, this is tabbed as
a Grp 6.  The bowl is pretty large, too, so I think a 6 is justified.
The cond. is exc.& unless my sense of smell has deserted me,
the pipe has played host to latakia blend(s).  The draw is open.
6.75" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams. Used.  $325.
Northern Briar Rox Cut Premier #1112124
This pipe is larger than it initially seems.  I was going to call it a
Grp. 5 size, but using the Dunhill size chart, it easily qualifies as
a Grp. 6.  Regardless, it is a two bead Squat Bulldog, is Ian
Walker's higher grade, Premier, and is unsmoked.
6" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 57 grams. New.  $150.
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. $325
Charatan Free Hand Relief #8901
Grp. 7 in size with a great, deep blast.  The way the rim is cut, it
almost looks as though there's an insert in the chamber, but I do
not think that's the case, unless the carver decided he cut the
chamber too large and then put in a briar insert.  In any case,
the previous owner liked the pipe and smoked it a lot, yet
preserved it so that all is intact, with clear nomenclature, a  stem
without tooth marks and a "CP" that is still visible, plus the Lane
"L" logo on the shank bottom.  The draw is wide-open. Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 55 grams. $95.
Dunhill U.S. Patent Number "Inner Tube" #1112222AG
to Loring's book, the U.S. patent # used on this pipe was issued
in 1920, and the "A," not being in a circle, could mean an early
pipe.  But I think the best guess is 1930 (I'm not sure 1920
Dunhills were dated).  The nomenclature is worn down, but still
legible.  There is a little wear on the rim, but overall the pipe is
in very good cond.  The stem, which appears to be original, is
in exc. cond.  Although it's a long pipe, the bowl is Grp. 3.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $325.
Peterson 1903 Repro #22740 (RESERVED)
Once again, an early date (1903 in this case) is stamped on
the band, but the hallmark tells us the pie was made in 1995.  
The cond. is exc. except for some carbon residue at one spot
of the rim, which can likely be polished off.  The draw is open.
5.35" long, bowl 2.1" tall. Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 47 grams. Used.$75
Peterson Sherlock Holmes Squire #117294 (SOLD 3/4/18)
A large Grp 5 size, or maybe 6, in very good cond., with two
tooth dents, not deep, on the top & bottom of the stem.  I should
be able to remove them for you.  The draw is happily open & a
cleaner passes through to the chamber bottom.  Used.
5.75" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 65 grams. $95.
