|Barling's Make #26717 (SOLD 6/14/15)
|I would like to say, after having initially mis-labeled this pipe,
that I am going to get Barling dates correct once and for all.
But we both know how prone I am to making mistakes. On the
other hand, if you have any positive feelings for me at all, it
may well be because you can come here, read my errors, and
leave feeling superior. I can live with that if you can part with
the shekels. What we have here is a used pipe in exc. cond.
that was made, based on credible info sent in by an indulgent
correspondent, between June & Nov. of 1962, while the old
Barling family was still running the factory, albeit under new
ownership, that of Finlay. Shape # is 3174, size is Grp. 3 and
the "Barling's Make" is in block letters. The stem may or may
not be original, but the logo has been re-stamped. Used.
5" long, bowl 1.7" tall. Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 31 grams. $145.
