Peterson Flame Grain #22757 (SOLD 4/10/18)
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.
Pre-Transition Barling #227288KM
The shape # is 238 and the bowl is in very good cond.  The
nomenclature is buffed down but it is all there and legible.  The
stem is most likely a  replacement stem & thus has no Barling
logo on it.  Wide-open draw and great Bird's Eye.  Used.
5.65" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  1.5 oz., 41 grams. $195.
Peterson Silver Spigot #227298CO
The hallmark letter is tiny, but it appears to be an "F" and so it
may be a 1991.  It's a Grp 3 in exc. cond., actually near-new,
with an open draw.  All the nomenclature is on the silver.  Used.
4.75" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 38 grams.  $125.
Peterson's Premier #42449
Grp 3 size, in exc. cond., with an open draw & sterling ferrule.
4.4" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 48 grams. Used.$75
1940 Pat. # Shell #42424RF
While on the phone recently with legendary pipe repair/restore
man Ronni B, we were talking about the historical value of col-
lecting WWII era pipes.  It does not appear to be a category that
attracts attention, although there are so many interesting,
diverse pieces that can be amassed.  As this does not have
a Pat. # that indicates it was made in the U.S., it must have been
made in England...during the Blitz?  This is a historically
significant pipe and in exc. cond.  It's a Grp. 3.  Dig it.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 5/8 oz., 19 grams. $450.
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
1997 Dunhill xmas Pipe 5 Gold Rings #329156
No. 201 of 500 produced for Xmas of '97.  There is some wear
at one point of the rim, but the stem is mark-free.  The original
case is in exc. cond., & it has some fine Bird's Eye to dwell on.
5.65" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 46 grams. $525.
1971 Dunhill Shell #42420RF
The condition of this Grp. 4 (which still means it is a small pipe,
based on the shape) is near-new.  The white trim adds a hand-
some touch.  I don't recall if it's commonly used on this model.
What is definitely not common is the superb vertical grain that is
revealed by the blast.  The draw is wide-open.  Used.
4.55" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight: 5/8 oz., 19 grams. $245.
Peterson's DeLuxe #227174 (SOLD 4/8/18)
The thick shank makes it appear to be a larger pipe than I think
it actually is, yet the stamping indicates this to be an XL.  It has
good cross grain & Bird's Eye & is in exc. cond.  My sensibilities
tell me that although this is not a pre-Republic piece, it is old.
The quality of the briar, the shaping, all head in that direction.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 62 grams. Used. $75.
Ferndown Bark Two Star Silver Spigot #1021115BK SOLD
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.
1964 Dunhill Shell #42417RF (RESERVED)
Two factors, ok 3 factors, define this pipe; in ascending order, the
year of production, which was during a golden age for Dunhill, the
condition of the pipe, which is flat-out excellent & the quality of the
blast, which matches some of the very best deep ring grains.  For
those reasons, this is not just another Cavalier (I've got those, too)
4.8" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 47 grams. $425.
Grant's House (made by Comoy's) #227231AG (SOLD 4/12)
This Grp 5 Apple was made many years ago for Grant's Pipe
Shop in San Francisco and carries the Comoy's shape #334
(which is called in Apple on one chart, but has the quaint name
of 'Globe' on another).  The cond. is exc., the draw is open, the
stem is Vulcanite.  Another piece of pipe history. Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $35.
Sasieni Four Dot Natural #8966JS (SOLD 4/10/18)
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
Upshall B "FH" & "HC" #227268KM
This might be the elephant in the room.  It is that large. the B
grade is higher than their standard, high quality, P grade & the
grain reflects that.  I don't know what the "HC" stands
for...maybe 'hand cut?'  The condition is excellent, with no wear
on the rim (a little inevitable carbon residue) & no marks on the
stem.  "Extra Large" is stamped on the shank, but that seems
like rather superfluous information to anyone but Paul Bunyan.
7.7" long, bowl 3.4" tall.  Weight: 4 oz., 114 grams. Used. $245.
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.  $95.
Willmer Extra #17251 (SOLD)
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. $35.
Peterson's Premier #108260 (SOLD 4/10/18)
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.
Charatan Executive #227273 (SOLD 4/22/18)
There seems to be something called the "Ruben era" which
represents Charatan before Herman Lane started putting the
"L" on the pipes that were imported by him into the U.S.  I don't
know how that era can be distinguished from pipes of approx.  
that time frame that weren't being sent to the U.S. & thus didn't
have an "L" on them?  Anyhow, this one does have an "L" on  
the shank, but it's clearly an early Lane piece, & does not have
the Double Comfort stem.  The nomenclature is buffed down,
but is all there and legible.  That's not the trouble.  There is a
fissure in the button of this fine old English pipe.  It's a solid
stem and will give many years of use if not bitten down on.  It is
not giving way to my finger pressure but must be acknowledged.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 69 grams. Used. $75.
Comoy's Blue Riband #227250MW
Grp. 3 in size, with an open draw and in exc. cond., with a hint of
tooth chatter on the bottom of the stem.  It has the 3 part "C."
The nomenclature isn't new & crisp, but it is all there, with no
rubouts, and easily legible.  Used
5.5" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz. 32 grams. $145.
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 (SOLD 4/10/18)
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 Centenary #227283  (SOLD 4/22/18)
Shape 999 was chosen to commemorate Peterson's 100th
Anniv., 1875-1975.  That means this very handsome Grp 5 is
already 43 years old.  The draw is open 7 with flame grain at
the top of the bowl, and fine Bird's Eye on the bottom, the pipe
provides a lot to look at.  It is in exc. cond. Used.
5.65" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 48 grams. $85.
1999 XX Ashton Pebble Grain #518305 (SOLD 4/10/18)
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.
1961 Dunhill Bruyere #227156 (RESERVED)
Although some of the nomenclature has been buffed down, all
of it is legible (reading the date and the "Made in England)"
might take a little scrutiny).  It is a Grp 4 & while the rim is not
pristine, it is in very good cond., with no charring.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 35 grams. $175.
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 (SOLD 4/27)
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 (SOLD 4/8/18)
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.
2001 Dunhill Xmas Pipe..9 Drummers Drumming #329162
Yes, this comes in the original book-like Xmas case, and it, like
the pipe, is in exc. cond.  This is #22 of the 500 produced. Used
6" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 56 grams. $575.
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.
1982 Dunhill Root Briar #227179
This is a Grp 4, with shape #41022.  With just a little turning the
pipe cleaner went through to the bottom of the chamber.  For
a basic Dunhill, there is a lot of good straight grain & no bad
grain.  The draw is open.  The condition is New.
5.5" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $445.
Sasieni Four Dot Rustic "Moorgate" #227161 (SOLD 4/10)
Other than the dark spot on the inner rim, this pipe is in exc.
cond. and it's a beautiful representation of that carved grade
that follows the grain.  It looks sharp on the page because it is
sharp.  The nomenclature is crisp and the draw open.  Used.
5.3" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 38 grams. $125.
Royal Comoy's #1112-91 (SOLD 4/10/18)
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.
Petereson 2001 Limited Edition 327306CO
Handsome, but be careful when holding it while smoking 'cause
that silver rim will get hot.  It's a Grp 5 in size with an open draw
& solid grain all around, with good Bird's Eye on the flat bottom
(the pipe does sit).  As you can see, it comes with a good
looking wood stand.  There is a little dent on the rim. Used.
5.45" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 73 grams. $175.
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 (SOLD 4.22/18)
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 (SOLD 4/10/18)
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 (SOLD)
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 (SOLD 4/10/18)
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.
2004 Dunhill Xmas Pipe..12 Lords a Leaping #329168
I am just so amused at the sight of these 12 lords leaping off the
Tower of London, or so I imagine it.  I guess Henry VIII is after
their necks.  No. 22 of 500 Xmas pipes, and it does come with its
original book-like case.  Everything is in exc. cond.  Used.
5.75" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 2.5 oz., 72 grams. $575.
Peterson Limited Edition 2002 #227301CO
In near-new cond., with an open draw.  It's a Grp. 6 size & the
tenon can take a 9mm filter if you so choose.  No need to do so,
and the pipe will function just five.  FYI, it's pipe # 246 of 1,000.
(It doesn't say that...I'm just guessing.  OK, It does say it.)  The
cross grain extends to the bottom of the shank & bowl.   Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 64 grams. $145
Northern Briar Rox Cut Premier #1112124 (SOLD 4/27/18)
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 No. "Inner Tube" #1112222AG (SOLD)
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 (SOLD 4/8/18)
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 Spigot #227293CO (SOLD 4/26/18)
Shape 999, although it doesn't say it on the sandblasted shank.
According to the Dublin silver hallmark, it is a 2001 and the size
is between a large Grp 4 or a small 5.  The cond. is exc., with
an open draw.  The tenon can take a 9mm filter.  Used.  
5.5" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $125.
