This is a large Tim West sitter that I will be selling in the near future. I don't really know what it is worth. Tim made it for me back in either 1998 or 1999 and I think I paid around $150 at that time. Suggestions as to what would be a fair price will be most appreciated.
Other than some toothmarks on the stem and tar buildup on the rim it has no issues. The dimensions are: 7" in length, 2.1" in height, bowl diameter is .875", and bowl depth is 1.75". The weight is 84 grams.
Sorry for the crummy pic, I took it with my phone.

No clue what it's worth, but it looks nice. I'll trade you 1 full sleeve of my Oreos for it. You supply the milk. :twisted:

You're just jealous. :nana:
Ohhh, Fig Newtons are good too! Been ages since I've had those. Alright! A full sleeve of those! We'll strike a deal yet. :puffy:

One way to get an idea is to do an advanced search on eBay for completed listings. Here's one for Tim West.

If you do a search on ebay for "Tim West" you will see some auctions of similar pipes. Some have "buy now" prices. Take a look at those and see how they compare to your pipe.

Well, at least the floor is in focus. :) Most phones let you tap on the object in the picture you want to be in focus.
