    They look OK, very possible the seller is correct. I don't understand the Moretti, it is marked. I don't think either is very valuable or collectible, but both may be nice pipes if you can get them at a decent price. They shouldn't go too high IMO.

    It sure is!

    I'd guess the value is in between the extremes mentioned!

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    I don't understand the Moretti, it is marked.

    I think the seller is claiming it is "unmarketed" i.e. never made it to the store, not "unmarked" i.e. not stamped.

    Yes, it is un-MARKETED but it is marked. So there isn't a valuation I can reference to... for both these pipes. Which leads me to ask ... how much should i pay for these pipes, max?

    I know moretti can go from 100-200+, and savinelli high grades are much more (if what the seller claims for the pipe is true). What do you guys think would be a fair price to grab these? They do seem like a nice pipes to smoke with

    Final bid? Difficult to say, particularly with the reject Savinelli. I don't know anything about either brand, but I'd do a ebay search for sold Moretti's to see the range.

    Hello Fellow Pipe Smokers,
    This is my first post, and already I have a question.
    How do I join the Tobacco of the Month Club? My son gave
    it to me as a Christmas present a couple of years ago, and
    I loved the variety it offered. Is there a place I can
    write to?
    Thanks!
    The Rev

    I would point out that the first pipe, the "highest grade" savinelli is covered in fills!

    To Master Po: Is it not being able to see that makes you tire of life?
    Master Po: No! It is being able to hear!

    Wonder if it was refinished. It would be ever so nice if all the photos were exposed properly. Looks like some very large fills, as well as a lot of them.
