Wow.  This went for forty bucks or so.  How do you tell what's under all that "patina" without buying the pipe?  Roll the dice?  Good luck to someone; hope it's not one among us.  Or, if it is, hope he or she makes me eat my skepticism.  With before and after pics. of course.  Wow.  (Wait--I said that.)

I looks in very sorry shape but, in my opinion very doable to restore.  Wink 
But almost $40 is a bit much, $25 at best in its present condition and not knowing the manufacturer. Sad

I agree with Cartaphilus, it's doable but $40 was high. And as someone above said: "Very good"?! Even someone with no experience can tell that is not "very good" and there is no need to lie about it!

If people are going to keep agreeing with me around here, I'm going to quit posting.
You all taking the fun out of it!
