Well it looks like you just bought a dunhill pipe with a replacement stem. I would definately get rid of some of that cake in the bowl too. I hope it is a good smoker for you. I really love the shell pipes.

I have never seen a dunhill marking on a stem like that. All the ones I have just have the white dot. I hope you enjoy it. I enjoy mine.

I just looked it up on a site I had saved and I believe you are correct. From what I read it should be 1960 pipe. I don't have any that old. Wished I did. Enjoy my friend.

Looks like 1960 is a good bet. According to a chart I have, 1960 would be the last year for the underlined year markings. 1954 would be the last year the patent number was used, if my chart is correct.

Getting rid of the "mouse bites" might be tricky. Smile

heres some pics after i reamed it out a bit.

I smoked a bowl, it smoked pretty good. the stem airway was so small, a pipe cleaner would not fit down it, i drilled it out and it is much better now.









Anybody know what kind of stem this is?

Looks like a Peabody, Yellow Bowl, or Il Ponte.

I almost bid on that,.....glad you got it. It's fixable. I think Dunhill replaces stems.
