After Duane posted - about Sparrowhawk posting about getting his Dunhill - which resulted in Duane getting a birth year Dunhill, I visited the site responsible for all this madness and now have a birth year Dunhill of my own about to head my way. A 1964 Bent Billiard to be exact. So thanks a lot guys. That Tom Eltang poker I'm wanting just keeps getting farther away.

Oh, man. Well, if there was ever a good reason to push back the Eltang, that is it. That is a nice looking pipe! Congrats.

Unbelievable!!! Duane actually may be a Higgs Bosun particle of Dunhill PAD....In quick session after his posting and Bradley's Von Erck thread, I too have a birth year Dunhill on the way.
Congratulations on your Birth Year Dunhill - it's a beaut.

I have no dunhill pipe (yet?) but if I see a '1982 anything' that takes my fancy I will seriously consider it

Congrats! Beautiful..

I too have a 1964 Dunhill that I am wondering if I want to sell or keep.

Sure love it every time I smoke it on Sundays.

Problem is I was born in 1947.

@mortonbriar, Mastro de Paja's dated 1982 can be found, that is the last year that Giancarlo Guidi was associated with the brand. He started Ser Jacopo in 1983. The brand has had quality issues over the years, but pipes of that era can be had at prices that make them solid values. IMHO

Stan, that's gorgeous! Maybe I've looked at Dunhills the wrong way. The older ones are much more fetching than their newer offerings.
