Bent the pipe

Burgundy Red

my site! Or visit the Site Map.
Steve Landgraf (sland20196) auctioned a lot of twelve pipes on eBay - all made by SuperTemp Corporation. Half of them had been repainted by owners and all of them had been reconditioned by salt cleaning the bowls. Most of them have replacement mouthpieces.

This one was repainted and reconditioned. Even so youcan see a scuff mark and the imprint is nearly completely paint filled. The new red is also more fire engine red than the original color. Here is a perfect example of what happens when a point system breaks down. It's not worth half the points it earned on the "valulator."

Alejandro Claude decided to give a whirl anyway!


The value of pipe #789 is 36 points.
