The value of pipe #496 is 34 points.
There was an eBay auction for a lot of three pipes. One of the lot was this specimen and I wanted one like this to smoke. The price was right, so I got it from acchocho. It will be on the Pipes for Trade page until someone has an offer for me. When I decided to sell off some more from this page, George Sackett jumped on it and now it is his.
