    Good Morning all, I would greatly appreciate your opinions on this pipe especially around markings and the button.

    1953 Root briar, button looks passable. Pipe has been a little beaten up, but should clean up into a decent, not pristine, pipe. No real red flags.

    If that is indeed a '53, I know someone looking for a '53 Dunny who could clean that up very nicely.

    has to be a '53 since it has a patent number and group and finish stamps.

    Nice score Owen.

    Yes, 1953 and should clean up easily, maybe a little work on the rim. Stem is most likely a later replacement, but oh well....

    Button is passable and can be refinished with some black superglue.

    A size 1 Dunhill is rare, good grain on this one.

    Thank you for your replies. I'm glad to clarify the date as through my loupe the date number looked like a 6 or 8 which was confusing me.

    From 1955 the pat.nr. was no longer shown on the pipe.
    The groupnrs. were introduced in 1951.

    Thanks for the extra info Orlando furioso. It's always a learning curve with pipes.

    Beautiful shaping and should clean up to be quite a beautiful piece!
