The value of pipe #277 is 34 points.
Lee Pattison is a man I admire tremendously. He does not collect these pipes, but whenever he sees one, he gets it for me. He never wants me to pay for them, asking only "Send me some good tobacco." I try to give him the best I have cellared in sufficient quantity that he feels adequately compensated. The Federal Gold Bent has joined the collection; the other Venturi products went to the Pipes for Sale page; the odds and ends will be offered on eBay. Thanks, Lee! There finally came an un-smoked example of the shape/color so this one will now be sold. Bill Moore took a shine to it and bought it.
