The value of pipe #284 is n/a points.
Thornton Ege offered a treasure trove of five the pipe specimens on eBay. When the dust settled, the blue bent was marginally better than the previous specimen (which was moved to the Pipes for Sale page) and will stay in the collection until I get a better example. The maroon author, orange bent and white Canadian are color/shape combinations I have longed for and proudly take their place in the collection. The green Dublin, a very rough specimen indeed which I suppose is why he threw it in as sixth "bonus pipe," and the pink author were duplicates of pipes already in the collection. They were placed on the Pipes for Sale page.
This one is now on the Pipes for Sale page, too since I now have a better example of the shape/color. Rick Osborn liked it and offered to buy it, but I gave it to him in exchange for a pipe to be named later.
