The best example of its kind I've ever seen.
(Pardon me while I go buy some lottery tickets... dashes for the door)

Wow, those look spectacular! Item watched. Might have to get some popcorn and watch the sniping ensue with an hour to go. Already with 20 bids at over a thousand and it still had almost a week left. It'll be interesting.

$400 a piece, for patent era blasts, seems about right. Their condition, and the fact that they're a cased set will add a premium. How much of a premium beyond their values individually is what we'll soon find out. I'll guess they'll close at $2K for the set, but that's totally just a guess...

Yeah, I’ve got this one saved on my watch list already. No doubt a great set that will head into the stratosphere.

Fun to watch like watching a Barret Jackson auto auction. Things I would love to own but could never get past my wife.

It the stems didn't have the Reg no stamped on them, I'd be suspicious. Those buttons look gi-normous! I predict $2642 for the set.

I'd guess at around $4500 for the set. Condition is superb on all pipes as well as the case. If it doesn't hit at least the high 3's I'd be surprised. Right now there are no serious bids.

I’m with headhunter here, I think it’s going to at least go over 5 grand.

132 watchers. 1924. Wow! What a nice set. H. A. W. ? : Only missing some provenance, perhaps. Seems this pipe market is still somewhat alive :)

Hey for a hedge fund person at the high water mark, or a dot-com multi-millionaire, this is just walking around money. Two, six, or eight K, breezy easy. As Hemingway joked when Fitzgerald said, "The rich are not like you and me," Hem said, "Yes, they have more money."
