    Hi guys
    Just recieved this in the post.

    As always with these things the excitement when opening the box is something, will it be as I imagined? Hoped? Feared?
    I have ordered a number of pipes that when they turned up were tiny and didn't become a regular smoker because of that, this time the opposite is the case,

    I wanted to start a little sub collection of BBB pipes and was hoping this would be the centre piece.

    I would much appreciate your views on the hallmark date letter as everytime I look at it and compare it to hallmarking charts I get a different result. Birmingham Sterling Silver but date letter?

    Yep. 1893. However, the Assay Office shows 1893 having an oval rather than the 8-sided "rectangle".

    I had that one saved in my watch list and was called away from the computer as the bidding ended. You got a great deal on that pipe. Congrats.
