1923 Dunhill's "Shell Briar" #37239
The nomenclature is exceptionally crisp, reflecting the overall
cond. of the pipe.  I'm not sure it's an original stem and rather
think it isn't, although it may be an old replacement.   On this
and the 1923 Dunhill above a # 9 is stamped on the shank. .
5.15" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $425.

1970 Dunhill Bruyere #211946
I can get that carbon off the rim, but the rim will still not be perfect
as there is a tiny bit of wear.  Otherwise, the pipe is in exc. cond.
It is a Grp. 4, although it does seem a bit small to me.  The draw is
wide open, but don't expect this kind of bend to take a cleaner
through to the bottom of the chamber.  I've seen this shape go very
quickly in the past.  Used.
4.85" long, bowl 2" (plus) tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $215.
Upshall P #8033100
Overall, the pipe is in good shape, but it definitely shows signs of
use.  The rim is not smooth and may have been sanded and
re-stained.  Or maybe not.  The logo has been buffed off the stem
and there is minor tooth chatter on it.  But the draw is wide-open,
the chamber is in fine cond., allowing for years of use, and the
outside bowl and long shank are in good cond., with no dings, etc.
6 1/4" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams. Used. $85.
Comoy's Extraordinaire #37291
Grp. 5 in size, and in good cond., although it is possible that a
new 3 piece "C" was put in this stem.  That or it was specially
buffed in that area.  The pipe was handled enough to soften
the edges of a sandblast.  The stem is flat and comfortable at
the button and the draw is wide-open. Nomenclature OK to dull.
5.9" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 45 grams. Used. $90
1937 Barling's Ye Olde Wood
It's nice stemwork, but it's not original stemwork, so I have no
idea how to price this gem.  The bowl is in very good cond., with
just a touch of wear on the inner rim.  The nomenclature on
both stem and silver are in exc., crisp condition.  The letter
revealing the date is a "B" and the initials of the Barling boys
are also on the silver.  It is a Grp. 4 in size, the draw is wide
open, so it should smoke great.  All that remains is for you to
find an old Barling's stem with logo somewhat intact.  Used.
5.9" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 36 grams. $295.
1890 BBB #530104SR
This graceful pipe has a threaded horn tenon, which accounts
for the fact that the stem sits just a very little past perfectly
straight.  (The photo makes it seem much more severe than is
the case.)  The condition is excellent and the draw wide-open.
5.6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 48 grams. Price: $340
1964 Dunhill Tanshell #527170 (SOLD 6/21/16)
There is some carbon residue on the rim, but that is all it is
and the rim is, in fact, crisp and not worn at all.  There are two
insignificant (in my opinion) little tooth marks on the bottom of
the stem, right at the button.  The nomenclature is a little
buffed down but all quite clear and legible.  It's a Grp. 4. Used.
5.75" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 31 grams. $150.
Barling's Make Ye Olde Wood #26753
The bowl, the rim, the chamber, the nomenclature are all in
exc. cond.  The shape # is a 3 digit 233 and the size is
stamped as EL.  It's about the size and shape of a Dunhill LB.  
The draw is wide-open, but the stem is almost assuredly new,
and the stem logo is definitely newly minted.   Vulcanite. Used
6" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $225.
Charatan Executive #123818 (RESERVED)
Easily a Grp. 6 in size, and my thumb fits easily into the
chamber.  Somebody liked this pipe and smoked it a lot, but it is
still in good condition, although you can see the wear on the rim.
All the nomenclature is intact and legible, although considerably
buffed down.  The "L" is there.  Judging from the "V" channel in
the business end of the stem, this is an acrylic stem, and thus a
replacement, although the "CP" looks entirely legit to me as
does the stepped stem, although there is no "DC" stamping
visible to me on the shank.  There is a chip on the rim.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 74 grams. $85.
Pre-Transition YOW Special Barling #37223 (RESERVED)
The Barling's logo is buffed down, but you see the full "cross" so
we know that this is an original stem.  It has a 3 digit shape #,
although there is a "B" after the 326.  Must have been
designated a "Special" because of the fine cross grain and
Bird's Eye.  That's what I would do.  There are two minor tooth
indents on the bottom of the stem and a little wear that you can
see on the inner rim of the chamber.  Group 4, with open draw.
6.25" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 36 grams. $375.
Dunhill  Group 2 Tanshell #715150
Yes, there is definitely wear on the inside of the rim, but the
difficult part of this pipe is translating the date stamp.  It's clear
enough, but after the "England," there's a '7' which should
indicate a 1967, but after that is an '
8' which would then
indicate a 1958 pipe, suggesting the '7' was a mistake.  Well
take your preference.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 7/8 oz., 26 grams. $135.
James Upshall P #527193
I like seeing new, high grade pipes that have been made without
a bowl coating.  Even better is to see an English pipe with that
attribute.  This one is a Grp. 6.  The draw is open and the
balance, while hanging from the teeth, is also very good.  The
briar is good and clean enough that no dark stain was needed
to cover up pits, etc.  The stem is vulcanite.  New.
5.8" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 58 grams. $295.
Upshall P #37115RS (SOLD 6/8/16)
Were I to be asked by the pipe gods what shape needs greater
representation I would say, "the Apple," and not just because it
so accurately represents the fall of man (and, if my observations
are correct, we are still dropping).  Nobody has asked, but here
is an Apple, which you can smoke while contemplating our
species' latest folly.  It's a Grp. 4 in size and like new. Used.
5.7: long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $125.
Dunhill Tanshell ODA836 #37147 (SOLD 6/12/16)
Clearly, somebody liked the way this pipe smoked as it has
been smoked and handled a lot.  The stem is acrylic and new.
The chamber is in good condition and any burnouts would have
surfaced long before now, so there are lots of good smokes left.
6.75" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 60 grams. $125.
Comoys Tradition (from 1945-1949) #37280 (SOLD 6/12/16)
The country of origin stamp is an oval with a simple "London
Made" in an arch, or Rugby ball-like oval.  This, according to
Pipedia, can place the pipe as early as the 1930's.  The silver
band should also help, but although it does say it is sterling,
and has the "HC" in an oval, it is missing the all important
hallmark with the dating letter.  The "Comoys,"in block letters &
without the apostrophe but and with the "C" larger than the
other letters accurately gauges this pipe to be right after the
war and prior to the '50's.  Other than slight dings on the rim, it
is in exceptional shape and has the 3 part "C."  Size is Grp. 3.
5.85" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 28 grams. Used. $150.
Barling's Guinea Grain #26743
A touch of wear is visible at one part of the inner bowl rim,
and the logo on the stem is freshly stamped.  The "Barling"
is in script; family era Guinea Grains employ a "Barling's,"
with an apostrophe 's'.  The 4 digit shape number is 5291
so the conclusion is that this is post family production.   It
appears to be a Grp. 4 in size with a wide-open draw.  Used.
5.25" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight:1oz., 27 grams. $85.
Charatan's Make Special Deluxe #37152
A most interesting and confounding pipe, indeed.  In attempting
to find out this pipe's era, I read Fabbio Ferrara's superb article
on Charatan's on Pipedia.  (BTW, I met Fabbio a number of
times when visiting the Radice family during that time that David
Field was importing and distributing that brand and Fabbio
came from his home in Parma to help us translate...I hope he is
thriving.)  That helped a lot and maybe cleared up my concern
regarding this being a newish Charatan.  I thought that might
be the case because of its exceptional condition, including the
fact that it has never been smoked.  The very first tip that this is
an older pipe is the shape of the button area of the stem.  It is
rounded, in the old fashioned manner...almost like those stems
made between the two World Wars.  Secondly, the "CP" is an
old, thin style, with the "C" penetrating the "P" approx. to the
middle of the "P's" enclosure.  All this, without an "L" (although
that is not, as Fabbio drills home a number of times, fully
indicative of a pipe's vintage) would put the pipe pre-1961.  
Yet, the "Made By Hand In City of London" is in script, putting
the pipe in the 1966-1979 era.  Further complicating the matter
is the absence of a shape #, and thus no accompanying "X."  
("DC" doesn't apply here.)  It also has an "Extra Large" on the
bottom of the shank.  The "Deluxe" seems to put this back as
early as the 1950's, but that can easily be wrong.  As I read
Fabbio's guide, this pipe exhibits a number of anomalies.  The
size is a Grp. 6, and the chamber is large enough to take my
thumb.  If any of you have
specific info which will detail this pipe's era, I would be happy to
hear it.  Unsmoked.
5.7" long, bowl 2.45" tall.  Weight: 3.5 oz., 99 grams. Price: $250
Pre-Transition Barling's Make EL #527148
This is shape # 329 and despite the EL, I'd call it a Grp. 4 size.
Overall the condition is great, but the logo was buffed off the
stem top and there is that rough edge on the outer rim of the
bowl over the shank.  The nomenclature is crisp and the draw is
wide-open.  I do believe it is an original stem; it fits seamlessly
and there is no sign of sanding/staining on the shank, so it's
doubtful that a replacement stem was put on the pipe.  Used.
5.4" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 28 grams. $150.
Peterson's Kildare #821433
With no P-lip as an impediment, the draw here is wide-open.  
Further, the bowl is not coated with black stuff (although it does
appear to be stained).  I'd call it between a Grp. 5 & Grp. 4. New
5.75" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $75.
1948 Pat. No. Dunhill Root #527119
The size is a hair short of being an ODA, but no size is stamped
on it.  The cond. is very good, with just a touch of wear on the
inside of one part of the rim.  The stem is mark-free.  The
nomenclature is all legible, although it is buffed down.  Also, the
stem does not leave that much air between it and the shank, as
the photo above right shows.  I neglected to push it closer to
the shank and it erroneously looks like a lot of daylight between
the stem and shank.  It isn't perfect, though.  Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $350.
1923 Dunhill's "Shell Briar" #37234
From this era, it is almost expected that you would get such
marvelous grain, with an exhibit of branch wood on the left side
of the bowl.  The cond. is exc., and  the stem appears to be
original in every way.  the nomenclature is all visible, although
some of it is buffed down a bit.  The draw is open. Used.  
5.55" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $550.
Northern Briar Rox Cut Regal #215022
This is marked a Grp. 4, but it's much larger than a Dunhill Grp.
4 in size.  It's at least a 5.  The cut on this pipe is less sharp
than on the Premier listed just above.  It's a classic British
Billiard and provides Ian's superb value in his typical fashion.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 54 grams. New. $190.
Charatan Executive #37051RS  (SOLD 6/3/16)
"Extra Large," "Made by Hand in the City of London," and with
the "L" emblazoned on the shank, this old English pipe is in exc.
cond. and is all original.  Safe to say that this pipe exemplifies
what the old Charatan aimed to do.  Used.
6.75" long, bowl 1,95" tall.  Weight: 2.75 oz., 77 grams. $225.
Pre-Republic Peterson #822504
There is no grain on one side of the bowl, and a visible fill on
the front of the bowl.  The pipe is made in Ireland and the cond.
is very good, with just a bit of wear on the rim.  The band looks
original, as there is no crack in shank.   with Grp. 4 size. Used
5.75" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $75.
Charatan Selected #1130523
Big.  Well, you don't have to hear it from me...take it from the
Charatan people who stamped this one "Extra Large."  My
thumb swims in the bowl (well, it would, if it could swim).  The
cond. is good, with the carbon and slight wear you see on the
inner rim and minor tooth chatter on the bottom of the stem.  
The nomenclature includes the Lane "L"  and everything else is
crisp, except the "CP" logo on the stem, which is barely visible.
7 1/8" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 2 3/4 oz., 78 grams. $150.
Pre-Transition Barling's Special EXEL #101470AG
The pipe shape # is 447 and the residue of the original stem is
visible.  Also, the cond. is exc., with a very clean stem and bowl
rim.  If there is any drawback to this pipe, I think that the thick-
ness of the wall is not in proper proportion the the diameter of
the chamber.  I would guess that the pipe might thus smoke
hot.  Yet, the pipe is used and there is no hot, or dark, spots on
bowl, so one can presume it does not smoke hot.  
5.5" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $200
BBB #83024SR
The stamping on the band does not add up to a hallmark date,
so I don't know the exact year of this pipe, but the hole at the
end of the stem indicates a very old pipe, as does the sold
"BBB" stamped on the shank, without any other identifying info.
It is a Grp. 2 in size.  Other than the wear on the rim, the pipe is
in excellent cond.  You can see the diamond outline of the BBB
logo on the stem, but the letters have been buffed off. Used.
5" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 28 grams. $135.
Comoy's 1989 Christmas Pipe #37275
What, pray tell me, makes this a "Christmas" pipe?  Is it even
Christmas worthy?  Yes, I think Christ would have been a pipe
smoker.  No doubt.  But to commemorate his birthday (which
likely was not Dec. 25th, but that's a nother story) his mother
was astute enough not to have been caught buying him this
pipe.  What shape do you imagine Jesus would have smoked?
Anyhow, this pipe is in very good cond., although there is a  
tooth indent on the bottom of the stem.  The draw is open. Used.
What may look like fills in the top pic are simply bowl dings.
5.75" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $65
1981 Peterson's System Premier #527264
It seems to me that almost any grade higher than "Standard
System," is uncommon, although that might well be because of
the plethora of pipes at the basic grade that Peterson produces.
This pipe is shape 314 and is smallish, maybe a Grp. 3 in size.
The sterling band is hallmarked, thus I can give you the pipes'
YOB.  The draw is of the the typically lousy P-lip variety.  Used.
4.9" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $60.
Charatan Belvedere #527159
A pipe like this is money in the bank (and then just as quickly
spent and gone...don't we all know that?).  But even money in
the bank brings its conflicts.  I have only one and I'm going to
have disappointed clientele.  I hate disappointing people, so I
almost don't want to list this.  The message to you, I guess, is
please be prepared to be disappointed, but you can't get it if
you don't try.  As for the pipe, the cond. is exc., the stem is not
double-comfort so is therefore not original, but the
nomenclature is crisp & clear and and it has the "L" on it.  Used.
5.8" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 38 grams. $75.
Sasieni Four Dot Hurlingham #527164 (SOLD)
Frequently, I'll hear from a customer that the pipe they just
received in the mail looks better in person than it did in the
photo on this site.  That is due to my dexterity with a camera
and is fortunate, because the customer is then encouraged to
get more pipes from me, believing that they will all show up
better than they look from afar.  In this case, I wouldn't
guarantee that.  To me, the color looks muddy in person and
almost glossy, or shiny, in the pics above.  No drastic disparity,
but enough so that it's worth mentioning and so I don't get any
nasty mail.  (I can't recall ever hearing back that a pipe looked
worse in person.  Maybe people are just being polite.)  The
cond. of this pipe is exc., with the possible exception of the
carbon on the rim, about which I can't do much on a sandblast.
The stem is mark-free, the draw is wide open and the size is
Grp. 5.  It is a family era Sasieni, although certainly not an early
version, but also not too late, considering the size and color of
the dots.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
5.8" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams.  $95.
1967 Dunhill LBS Root Briar #416169SR
The cross grain and Bird's Eye on this pipe are terrific, and the
condition of the pipe is very good, with only a little wear on the
inner rim of the chamber.  There is also a tooth mark on the
bottom of the stem.  It is a Group 4 in size, but it is still large.
5.9" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 46 grams. $325.
Charatan's Make Authentic #527177 (SOLD 6/17/16)
Clean & crisp, from the inner rim to the stem and nomenclature.
The "CP" logo on the stem is slightly buffed, but entirely legible
and the cross grain is worthy of a high grade.  It has the "L"
and the DC stem.  It's a Grp. 5 & my thumb fits into the bowl.
5.5" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 38 grams. $75.
Pat. # Dunhill #527154
This is a large Grp. 5, and might conceivably be a 6.  I can tell
it's an older Dunhill even without seeing that it's a Pat. #
because of the old, rounder stem button.  The difficulty is that
the nomenclature is worn way down, so that I can barely see
that it says it's a Patent.  The exact year is obliterated.  The
stem condition is excellent, the rim condition not so much.  The
draw is wide-open & the inner chamber is in fine cond.  Used.
6.75" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams.    $150.
Sasieni 4 Dot Ruff Root Bark #52719
As much as we elitist bastards make fun of the newer Sasieni
4 Dots, i.e., those using the number 4 instead of having it
spelled out, this isn't a bad piipe in any way that i can detect.
The draw is wide-open, the vulcanite stem is flat and
comfortable, it's a Grp. 4 in size and the blast is no worse than
a lot of other pipes costing a lot more.  This one is new.
5.65" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $60.
Peterson Standard System Shape 312 #37270
It is shape 312, but not XL, although it seems a bit larger than a
standard size to me.  Maybe not.  Anyhow, Peterson is a well
known commodity and in this case the pipe is unsmoked.  
5.3" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 59 grams. New.  $95.
GBD New Standard #52753
I'm confident that this is an older GBD.  How old?  I don't know,
but looking at the color of the stain, the extra work done in
making the rim nice and round and the stem button, it seems
safe to say the 1960's.  and possibly the late 50's.  I have not
found when the New Standard grade began, but I just might
have an old catalog that gives me some idea.  If I find anything,
I'll get back to you.  The cond. is exc., the draw is wide-open,
that old vulcanite stem is mark-free and the construction is such
that a thin cleaner goes right to the bottom of the chamber.
5.2" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams.  Used. $75.
GBD Garland II #52742 (SOLD 6/4/16)
The condition is very close to "like new."  The cross grain is quite
good and the draw is open.  But, I do see small fills on the shank
and bowl, which is indicative of a newer GBD.  It's a Grp. 4, but in
the Rhodesian shape, that still makes for a chunky, if not large,
pipe.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
5.3" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 66 grams. $50.
1964 Group 2 Dunhill Root Briar  #527129 (SOLD 6/13/16)
This looks more like a Grp. 3 to me than a Grp. 2, but I suppose
at is quibbling.  The pipe is in exc. cond., with no teeth marks
on the stem.  The draw is wide-open.  Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 1.35" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 27 grams. $185
1988 Ashton X Pebble Shell #52771
This near-new pipe is early enough in Bill Taylor's career to
have the Pat. # stamped on the bottom of the shank, with the
rest of the nomenclature.  The "X" indicates his basic size, which
is equivalent to a Dunhill Grp. 4.  The draw here is wide-open &
the construction good enough for a pipe cleaner to easily slide
to the bottom of the chamber.  Vulcanite stem.  Used, I think.
5.4" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $225.
Willmer AAAA Straight Grain Presentation #527107
If Willmer had a higher grade, I can't remember it.  you can see
how clean the barely stained briar is, and with some color that
straight grain is going to pop.  The chamber is large enough so
that I can stick my thumb into it and overall I'd call it a Grp. 6.
The pipe is unsmoked and has an acrylic stem, which is a bit
unusual for an English-made pipe.  It's a gem for a Willmer man.
6.25" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 65 grams. $295.
1965 Dunhill Root Briar #818160 (SOLD)
Made during Dunhill's golden age, which means while each pipe
was individually bench made.  The cond. is very good, with only
a touch of inner rim wear and a a few very minor tooth marks on
the bottom of the stem.  The stem is original and the draw is
wide-open.  It is a Grp. 4 in size.  Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $165.
Charatan's Make Authentic #527182
I like the shape of this pipe and apparently, the Charatan
people did, too because they named it (shape # 318) Jermyn,
which is the street on which they had their shop.  BTW, I do
love the individualistic names the English pipe makers gave to
their shapes.  Among Loewe & Sasieni, place names were
prevalent tried to capture the shape in their names, like the
Acorn, or Tun (a barrel).  There are tooth marks on the bottom
of the stem, but other wise the pipe is in exc. cond., but with no
"CP" logo visible on the  DC stem.  The "L" is still there.  used.
5.65" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $75.
1936 Pat. Number Dunhill #822490
Such a simple pipe should not be the source of so much confu-
sion, but it is for me.  First of all, there is no designation regard-
ing Bruyere or Root finish.  The nomenclature is buffed way
down, but except for a few numbers at the beginning of the Pat.
everything is visible.  Then, The Pat. # should be, according to
Loring's book, a U.S. patent, but no "U.S." is stamped on the
shank.  Further, the patent number that is on the shank is
supposed to have been used only from 1937-1941, but the
underlined number after the "England," is pretty clearly a 16,
making the pipe, presumably, a 1936 production.  Well, if you
like mysteries, you can buy this and figure it out for yourself.
I've given you all the info I can provide.  The condition is very
good, with no tooth marks onthe stem (original?  I don't know
for sure.  It certainly is an old stem, but the dot is a bit
whiter than I might expect) & very little wear on the chamber rim.
6 1/8" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 34 grams. $250..  
1949 Pat. No. Dunhill FE #37191
Original stem and very good condition, with just a touch of wear
on an inner rim to indicate the age of this pipe.  Grp. 4.  The
nomenclature is all legible, with the exception of a few numbers
in the middle of that long string being a bit buffed out.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 36 grams.  $375.
Sasieni Old English #52747 (SOLD 6/5/16)
The condition is very close to 'near new. It is a Grp. 3 in size
and the slimness and length brings to mind the fictional
detective Bullshot Crummond, with this pipe sticking out of his
mouth.  The draw is wide-open and the logo on the top of the
stem is visible, but buffed down to near invisibility.  Hand carved
to show off some of the cross grain.  Vulcanite stem.  Used. $35
Comoy's 1976 Christmas Pipe  #527124 (SOLD 6/13/16)
To celebrate Christmas and the birth of their first child, a son,
Mary gave Joseph this very pipe.  She stamped the shank
herself and when she realized that she was thus completely out
of shekels for the rent, the whole family had to find other
digs...well, you know the story.  Some of that might not be
exactly the history of this pipe, so for safety's sake, let's go with
the date that is stamped on the shank...1976.  That might not
have been the date of Christ's birth, but it was the year my
daughter was born, so it was still a very good year.  The bowl is
in exc. cond., but there is a significant bite mark on both the top
and bottom of the stem.  The draw is wide-open and the stem is
vulcanite.  It is a used pipe.  
5.45" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 37 grams. $50.
1967 Dunhill Root Prince #527134
A Group 4 in very good condition with just a touch of wear at
one point of the inner chamber rim.  Also, very minor tooth
chatter on the bottom of the stem and minimal dings on the
bowl.  Great old rounded stem button & wide-open draw.  Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $215.
Peterson's Dublin #527270 (RESERVED)
I am almost certain that the hallmark on the sterling silver band
tags this pipe as having been made in 1986.  Also, it's a system
style construction, but with a higher quality briar, I suppose.  
The shape # is 92 and it's a Grp. 5 in size and in exc. cond.  
The draw is pretty good and the cross grain and Bird's Eye is
quite appealing.  Vulcanite stem, as will all Petersons.  Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2.5 oz., 72 grams. $75.
Peterson's Sherlock Holmes Junior #527275 (RESERVED)
Because you pretty much know everything this pipe is, and what
it represents, and because it is in near-new condition, all that
needs to be added are dimensions (which you know) & price.
5.5" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 49 grams. Used. $75
