43 points description

I met Bill Unger at the 1998 NASPC pipe show. At that time he sold me several used the pipe and promised to keep an eye out for me for more. Imagine my delight when I attended the 1999 show and he had an English Blue Bulldog in the original packaging with insert, as well as three used ones. I was happy to buy them all for a very fair price. The English Blue Bulldog and Maroon Pot now have places of honor in the collection and the two Ebony Pots went to the Pipes for Sale page.

As you can see, the pipe had been smoked and suffered some paint damage, so when an unsmoked Bulldog with perfect paint came along I just couldn't resist putting that pipe in this pipe's packaging. This pipe is now a Pipe for Trade.
