The value of pipe #436 is n/a points.

Fred Sayward offered two pipes on eBay, an Ebony Bulldog and a Mocha Brown Bent. I had no real need for either one, but the Mocha Brown bent presently in the collection was pretty battered and I hoped that this one would be an improvement. The Bulldog went immediately to the Pipes for Sale page and the Mocha Brown joined the collection even though it is only a marginally better example, less chipping of the paint but having a small crack on top of the shank. This kind of split, while not common, is sometimes found on these pipes at the mold line. Anyway, it will do until a better one comes along.

The mouthpiece on this Ebony Bulldog the pipe has some tooth-marks, but the paint and bowl liner are pretty good. It should be quite serviceable. Sal Vitello decided to add it to his collection of smokers.
