    So I was given a corn cob pipe that I was told is pretty darn old, I'm assuming at least 80's but I don't know a ton about tobacco pipes so I'm not sure. And I've been trying to google the brand Buescher and can't find anything. It's in perfect condition, never been used, just has a couple small holes torn here and there in the bag that it came in. It has a sticker marking the price as 99 cents, but under that you can see where it was originally only 79, so I'm guessing it must be pretty old. I'd really like to keep it as a collectible but I'm basically just trying to figure out if it would be worth anything cause I'm pretty hard up for money right now, bit of a sticky situation. So if anyone has any info, it would be much appreciated. Thank you!

    Welcome to the forums!
    ...and the answer is:

    If it's in pristine condition I wouldn't smoke it. Buy yourself another cob to smoke.

    I have one that is unsmoked. I have no idea when or where I got it but it sits in the pipe rack as a conversation piece.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    So the link was quite helpful but I also was hoping to find out if it might be worth any decent amount of money if I could find the right buyer. I couldn't find any info like that though. Can anyone help?

    I'm not well informed about such things, but it might bring several times the value of a modern corncob. That's a significant amount of appreciation, but do you consider $20 - $25 a "decent"
    amount of money? Put it up for auction with a reserve price that you find acceptable.
