Hello all,

Happy Pipe Smoking Day!

I have a question for those of you who are knowledgeable on Dunhill nomenclature.

The pipe in question is a nice straight grain billiard from 1961.

It is stamped:

A DR

III DUNHILL

ROOT BRIAR

It is a group 3 pipe.

Could you please explain "A DR" and "III"?

The only Dunhill pipe I have is a 1961 Tanshell group 4. That pipe is a perfect size for me. How different will a group 3 be?

I don't know much about Dunhill pipes, but the one I have is a great smoking pipe.

I really appreciate your help on explaining what these stamping mean.

Thank you!
