This chubby 999 popped on eBay last week and I was able to grab it. I just finished the restoration, with details below.

According to Mark Irwins Peterson blog, this nomenclature was used between 1922 and 1938.

That's a really great looking pipe, a classic. I love that shape also--though perhaps not quite as much as some here.  Wink

Just curious: Is that pipe really almost 6" long, or is that just the perspective from the photo angle?

I didn't measure it, but I'd say it is pretty darn close to 6". It weighs 60 grams. (about the same size as the GBD 9438)

Btw, this pipe came thru ebay member "Judperl", who I believe is a member here. He had it in the mail a few hours after the auction ended, complete with customized packaging for his pipe/pen business. Impressive service.
