The value of pipe #065 is n/a points.

Baker Egerton told me that Mel Rudner was offering this pipe on an eBay auction. He had a couple of other briars with it in the lot. As part of our correspondence, I learned that Mel had a couple of other damaged pyrolytic graphite pipes and we arranged to swap the briars for the broken pipes. I don't what happened to this pipe; I had thought them indestructible until I got ahold of this one. Someone must have used it as a crow-bar! I wish the photo were just a bit clearer so you could see the material better, but you can see what unfinished compression molded phenolic resin looks like on the broken shank.
