The value of pipe #098 is n/a points.
Once again my friend, Baker Egerton, spotted an auction on eBay with quite a few other pipes. Adam Alterman outbid me - there were just too many pipes for me to pay a lot just to get the one. I wrote Adam and offered to buy the one I wanted. He wanted me to buy this the pipe with it. So I did and not long afterward sold it to Michael Lavery who found this web site and decided to try a pyrolytic graphite pipe.
