Figured for 50 bucks with shipping it wasn't too bad a deal for a Peterson this old.

It says made in England and my research states they made in England from 1895 through 1959.

Any help narrowing down would be great.
Here is the stamping:

Help dating a Peterson I just got off ebay. Peters10

Help dating a Peterson I just got off ebay. Peters11


And here is the ebay listing if you want to see more pictures of the pretty lady.

Can't help ya with figuring out her birthday, Ian, but she's a looker. Needs some TLC, but other than that, I believe you have a winner. cheers

She looks real similar to my Pre-Republic model "80," but mine says "Made In Ireland" only. Best I could do was guess mid 1920s to mid 1940s based on available info.

Meanwhile, clean 'er up and get smoking! Very Happy

Ian, here is Jim Tilleys link. He was one of the tops when it comes to Petes. http://thepetersoncollector.blogspot.com/2010/09/english-made-peterson-pipes-actually.html

Here's another source of info on Petes.
http://pipedia.org/index.php?title=Peterson

The "Made in England" in a block format is one of the earliest since Peterson was using the "Made in Ireland" block format at about the same time on their Irish production pipes.
Looks like you may have a good old Pete on your hands. Good on you!

That looks like a beauty. I don't know much about Pete stamping, hopefully someone else can add more info. That will shine up nicely! Those dent should also steam out as well.

I found this on the "Peterson Blog Spot". Unfortunately the stamp "London & Dublin" giant mentioned.

English made Peterson pipes actually spans between the pre-Republic and Republic eras. In 1895, Peterson opened a shop in London England that lasted until the late 1950s or early 1960s. So the English Era, for a simplified date, will be from 1895 through 1959. The stamps Peterson used in London and that we have seen are:
Made inEngland - block format

Made in England - circle format

Made in London

Made in London England

Simply, London England

Great Britain

Though there are a couple of more, the above will give one the general idea. We believe the earliest stamp of this era was the "Made in England" in a block format since Peterson was using the "Made in Ireland" block format at about the same time on their Irish production pipes. The "Made in England" circle format was used during the same time frame as the "Made in Eire" and "Made in Ireland" circle formats.

His says "London Made..." Any clues? Font type? The "Special" encircled? *shrug*

I'm curious now. Sure, I could go over to the IPPC, or whatever...but it ain't my pipe. tongue

Me too can't wait to see how that grain pops when buffed up a little. Like to keep older pipes with a matte finish so we'll see how she looks with a little elbow grease. Stem still looks in pretty good condition so I bet I can get that black and shiny though.

Option "B"

Smoke something very subtle (on this end, Union Square) as a "try" tobac. That way you can taste exactly what's left over from the last guy and how strong/persistent it's likely to be.

As long as it's not full of Lakeland Urinal Cake Perfume, the second & third bowls will give you a handle on whether (& how fast if so) it will recede. This, in turn, gives you a handle on whether the best long-term solution would be to send it off to Walker Briar Works for an Ozone de-tox that will let you start over again from square one in it. $5 + postage both ways + hassle + wait can still be way preferable to long-term annoyance.

FWIW
