I've just received a Peterson I bought off ebay last week, a sterling silver 80s.

A little bit of birds eye on both sides of the bowl


This is a special pipe as it has a hallmark from 1978 which just happens to be my birth year. I know Petersons where a little bit casual with hallmarked bands but so what, to me it's a 1978 pipe. I'm going to wait till my birthday before I fire her up for the first time.

1978 is my birth year as well and my birthday is coming up next month. You've got yourself a great looking pipe. I'm sure it will be an excellent birthday smoke!

Congratulations on a great looking pipe. I have a very similar one, a few years older and a wonderful little pipe. Enjoy.

Really nice pipe. I still have not acquired a bulldog yet. Someday I'll find one I really like for the right price. One like yours would be one I would like to own. Good choice.

Very nice! I have one Peterson I obtained in a trade. A small 317 w/P-Lip. I want something like a 313 I think. I need to study up and see what the hallmark would look like for my birth year(1956).
Enjoy the pipe. The wait will make it special!

I have a Peterson Flame Grain 80s and the hallmark is right in the bend of the band and I am unable to make it out.

So I don't have a clue when it was made.

Breathing/blowing on the hallmark can make it stand out, I presume it's the water vapor in your breath. Failing that a bit of greaseproof paper over the top of the hallmark and using a soft pencil to make a rubbing of the hallmark can sometimes help.

Great pipe Drennan! I want to get a pete, and that sure looks like a winner. Let us know how she smokes.
