22 points description

The 2002 NASPC pipe show in Columbus, Ohio was again a smashing success and one of the best for me in a long time. My friend Tom Colwell found this somewhat battered specimen in a lot he acquired and saved it for me. I bought it, as I often do at these shows, to encourage him to keep looking for me. Tom, after all, sold me the only Raspberry Dublin I have ever seen. Of course, since I have an un-smoked example of this shape/color in original packaging in the collection as well as one to smoke, there is no need to keep this one. So it goes to the Pipes for Sale page. The liner looks pretty good, but the paint shows heavy wear. The mouthpiece has no holes and isn't crushed, but it doesn't draw smoothly. I haven't tried to clean it. Sam Arquilla decided to give it a try.
