34 points description

The Estate Sale Store (sricci01) offered this pipe on eBay. It has been smoked some and the liner shows signs of improper cleaning, but nothing that would affect smokability. There are some very light tooth abrasions on the mouthpiece and it draws well. The paint is excellent with only a couple of flaws in the striping. It is a nice addition to the collection. Much later I learned that in the early days the All-American pattern of striping was offered on Ebony pipes too and this is an example of the good ol' red, white and blue on a black pipe!
