    Okay, so the Dunhill give away was a hit. I've been fortunate in a lot of phases of my life and I've been the bug that hit the windshield in a lot of phases.

    I'm giving away a pipe I just don't smoke. I'm not selling it, because it has a replacement stem. Granted, the stem was replaced by George Dilbos, so in all likelihood its better than the original, but I digress.

    For this give away you need to pick a number between 1 and 200. I'll keep this open until Monday morning and then I'll announce the winner. Shipping is on me. If you live in a restrictive import area, please consider that. I'm generous on this, but I'm not willing to jump through 40 hoops on a give away. I'll cancel your name and we'll hate each other. Please think.

    As an added bonus I'll include one tin of my beloved Klondike Gold. The tin is dated 9-14. Klondike is out of production and was aged two years before they sold it. So technically the tin is 6 years old.

    I need to thank my friend Beefeater33 for the inspiration.

    Oh, and I do this for the karma points so that houses don't collapse while I'm in them....that and I wear Ruby Slippers.

    Good Luck!!

    I would love this pipe but that does not seem very fair since you have given me so much. Good luck to all.

    Wow. Looks like some are getting into a kind of late (or early, if you're Ukrainian or go by the Julian calendar) Christmas spirit.

    Not complaining or being snarky, BTW. It just strikes me as unusual. All the power to you, guys.

    I'll forfeit my number and transfer 75% of my luck to whoever on this thread who has the least amount of nice pipes and would appreciate this the most.

    The remaining 25% of aforementioned "luck" goes to Ash for general use, in acknowledgement of the worthy gesture.

    P.S. I can't believe nobody picked 69 yet, somebody needs to get on that.

    I intended this to run until Monday, but we have a winner!!!

    The winning number is 83. The reason for 83 is simple, this is an Ashton Pipe and Bill Ashton first branded his pipes in 1983.

    Thank you all for playing and do not despair if you lost, I'm putting one more pipe up in a few days.
