I have been on the hunt for one of these for many years.  This little piece of bakelite is not the easiest pipe collectible to come across.  I found this one on eprey last week at a very reasonable price and did the BIN.  I waited for the package to see if I did alright and lo and behold I did!

Nice catch. I tried to obtain one for several months and kind of lost interest as the prices got out of hand.

I was extremely lucky as I saw this listing as soon as it was posted. I didn't even think about it. I just did the BIN and waited for it to be in my hands.

Has anyone seen these?
Beautiful Briar copies/reproductions, a bit expensive but, no more then a good pipe with the same amount of wood.

Anthony Harris makes those. He is probably the most talented wood turner I've ever seen. I'd rather have one of his versions than the real deal.

Nice looking pieces of work. I could not find a price listed and you stated they are a bit expensive, so how much are they?

Look just under the 1st photo, it's $175 although I'd contact him to verify it.

A bit more than I would have available but I'm sure they are well worth his price. Oh well  Crying or Very sad

Understood, now if they were about $65 maybe $75 I might go for one.
But, lets face it, I really haven't a use for one since I do no traveling of any sort.

Even though the briar ones are nice, I believe I will stick with my nice bakelite one I paid $27.00 for!

I've seen the bakelites go for more than $80.  While rare, they can occasionally be found for a lot less -- like Dave's acquisition and like this one, sold in  in July on eBay:

In all honesty when I bought mine, baccyflap was spelled wrong and it was the middle of the week. It was a BIN and I was the first guy to see it, I assume.

Nice haul! I've always wondered why they call it a Baccy flap, though. It's more like a container, no flap anywhere!  lol!

If people are willing to spend good money on these perhaps I'll have to list mine in the trading post shortly. It's cool but I could do without. What I find weird is that the male threaded half is the half with the nomenclature on it. The male threads create a lip that is better for holding the tobacco when you open it imo. So when I open it the nomenclature is down. I would have reversed it. I'd make you look at my logo everytime you opened it.
