Ok the pipe group most asked for is the Dunhill group which is fine with me since I had an acupuncture session today and my weekly ivIG infusion tomorrow so I can smoke the smaller group size pipes first.

I chose the oldest Dunhill pipe I own, the 100 y/o Shell Briar which is a group 1 in size, I purchased this pipe at a local yard sale for the princely sum of $1.00.

I decided some good, aged, Dunhill tobacco would be fitting so I'm keeping it smokey with some Dunhill 10 y/o Deluxe Navy Rolls.

Well I got two Peterson pre-republic's as well for $1.00 each, that was all the pipe paraphernalia they had or I would have spent more time and money. Wink

When I go to yard sales I'm like a man on a mission, if I don't see what I'm looking for I ask "got any pipes, fly rods, fly reels, Nikon or Leica camera lenses or firearms "?

Many times the answer is no, but not always! I do have to admit the pipes I most often encounter are C.B. Perkins and Erlich's both from Boston, the assorted Medico, Dr. Graybow and parts and pieces of once were pipes.

Banjo, great score on that Dunhill. Boy do I remember hitting yard/garage sales. Those were wake up real early days so you can arrive first for the best pickens. Riding through the back roads of Pennsylvania and hitting all the barn sales. My Dad and I use to score big time on old wall and mantle clocks. The good old days... cheers



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

Nice photo, but I never liked Dunhills, I guess 90% of them are standard billiards in shape.
