51 points description

Barry Milroad was at the New York Pipe Club Swap Meet in September, 1999. I met him at the social on Friday night and he said he had several the pipe that he might be willing to part with. I suggested that he bring them the next day and we would see if we could make a deal. He said he would be there first thing Saturday morning. By four the next afternoon I had given him up, but he trundled in about ten after four. He had a tale to tell of flat tires and a night spent locating the pipes. Altogether, there were 13 of these pipes, only three of which were duplicates of pipes already in my collection. His were only smoked a few times and are in mint condition so they all join the collection. His contribution has enhanced the collection considerably. Thank you, Barry!

This pipe moved to the Pipes for Trade page when a new-in-the-box CS Canadian came my way a couple of years later and I enjoyed smoking it for several years. Then along came another really nice guy by the name of Larry Buys. Larry gave me a NIB Morocco Grey Dublin so, when I learned that he had no CS pipes in his collection, I gave him this one
