The value of pipe #597 is 40 points.
This year (2005) I was able to attend the TAPS Pipe Show in Raleigh, NC. It was a nice show, but I noticed a couple of vendors have exaggerated notions of the value of these pipes. Luckily for me, Steve Shoulars wasn't one of them and I picked up this very nice example from him. A perfect specimen was given to me so this one now joins the Pipes for Sale. Joe Katsarelas found this web site and took a liking to this pipe, so now it is his.
