The value of pipe #053 is n/a points.
No fewer than three folks tipped me off to a lot of 4 the pipe on eBay. Not only did my reliable friend Baker Egerton let me know about them, but Robert Holmes and Jerry Kaplan also notified me they were being offered. This was one of the four that Brett Sloan shipped to me after I won the bidding. I got a better example of the shape and color, though, and gave this one to Al Blankenship along with a couple of others. To see why take a look at the cut-away he prepared and gave to me.
