The value of pipe #480 is 13 points.
Carl Skaggs offered a pipe rack with eight pipes on eBay. There were a briar Dublin, an Oyster White Billiard and an Ebony Dublin in the lot. I won the bidding and found that the painted pipes were in much worse condition than I had hoped and of no help to the collection, so the Dublin will go to Pipes for Sale and the Billiard will join the Pipes for Trade. The briar Dublin was in pretty good shape and a worthwhile addition to the collection of MADE IN ENGLAND pipes.
There is now a better example for the collection and a better one for trade, so this one has joined the Pipes for Sale page. The paint is very bad with many chips and scratches and the mouthpiece has many tooth abrasions. The bowl liner has some cake but seems to be quite serviceable. Not a pretty pipe, but one to try out the pipe and see how one likes it before spending a lot more money.
Joe Stallings found this site and decided to try this one out and, while he was at it, bought three more!
