Apple the pipe

The value of pipe #425 is 35 points.

Rick Osborn and I were chatting one day and he mentioned that he really wanted an Oyster White Apple. I checked his web site and saw this pipe described as California Rosé so I offered to trade. Imagine my surprise when the pipe arrived and was this Raspberry! I wrote Rick at once and offered to rescind the trade, but he was a true gentleman and refused to take it back. It moved to the Pipes for Trade page when I got an example of this shape/color which was not as faded. Eventually it was traded back to Rick in a massive swap-o-rama that left us both better off.
