The value of pipe #553 is 29 points.
Joseph P. Howen (josephphowen) offered a lot of pipes with pipe rack on eBay. I was lucky enough to win the bidding and got two the pipe and one THE SMOKE. The blue Author and maroon Billiard are in excellent condition and have joined the collection. The black Woodstock, also in excellent condition but not needed in my collection, went directly to the Pipes for Sale page. Michael Lavery bought it.
