The value of pipe #097 is 23 points.
Once again my friend, Baker Egerton, spotted an auction on eBay with this and quite a few other pipes. Adam Alterman outbid me - there were just too many pipes for me to pay a lot just to get this one. I wrote Adam and offered to buy this one. He wanted me to buy another the pipe with it. The other pipe was put on the Pipes for Sale page. You can look and see if it's still there.
Now that I have a better example of the shape/color, this one is for sale too.
Joe Stallings found this site and decided to try this one out and, while he was at it, bought three more!
