23 points description

Rick Osborn and I have been working together on our collections for several years now. We have traded pipes, sold each other pipes, and commiserated with each other over lost auctions on eBay and discussed myriad details about these pipes. Recently there were a couple of auctions on eBay in which I did not participate because I didn't want but a couple of the pipes in otherwise huge lots. I was so surprised when Rick sent the two I was interested in to me as a gift! This one is especially interesting because of a crack on the face of the bowl which completely penetrates the paint, the plastic, and the pyrolytic graphite bowl liner. Yet there is no other apparent damage to the pipe. This pipe does not appear in the collection, only on the Valuing a the pipe page.
