Having 6 blasted POs I have two which do not have the shield and like yours the Italy which is stamped below the model number is barely discernible because of the area of the blasting. How's it smoke? From what I've read today's Punto's and the Gubleo's are equal to if not BETTER than ANY of the current White Spots made today Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Hey Mon thanks for turning me on to punto oros. I have gotten 4 for under 100 dollars since you suggested it a few months back. I've only smoked one do far and its perfect. When I smoke this one I'll let you know. Maybe it's older? I don't know of the 102 sav shape do you

Savinelli used a 4 digit model number system prior to '75 and switched to a 3 digit after then. Since then they have changed model numbers a few times so that model number of 102 may not be one of the current numbers. What style is it? from the pic you posted it looks like a straight Billiard? BTW, after smoking a PO and if you do, getting a Guibleo you will NEVER buy a new White Spot!! These are two of he FINEST standard shape pipes available today IMHO Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

It's a straight billiard! My favorite and something that's seem impossible to find these days. I really like the Dunhill Bruyere billiards, the 3103, 4103 etc, and have really wanted one, but I was looking at some of the new ones and walls are soo thick! That's one thing I can't stand on a pipe, thick walls yuck!

Bugs,
Was looking around and found this 102 deluxe Milano from the late '70s so looks like at one time 102 was a Billiard style number !! Twisted Evil

I have  8 Punto Oro's and 1 Giubileo D'Oro  and on all of them the trade mark is stamped in front of the model number. It looks as if the trade mark on your pipe "got lost" in the blasting. Use a magnifying glass and see if you can find a trace of it.

I have 17 Savs in total and all of them are superb smokers.
