The value of pipe #259 is n/a points.
Fred Paluba offered a group of the pipe on eBay. In addition there was an English Blue Pot the pipe from the U.S. The four English pipes joined the collection and the blue American the pipe went directly to the Pipes for Sale Page. The mystery of these English pipes is described in A History of the pipe. Not long after that my Portugese collector friend, Hugo Schönenberger de Oliveira, bought it from me.
