    Hello all. I haven't ever really been active on the forums here. I'm quite the lurker though. I found some pipes this weekend. I'm always looking for them. I thought I'd share this batch with you folks on here because I got pretty excited about some of them and maybe some of you are like minded.
    I've never been good at posting pics to this site but I'll try again. These should be hotlinks from postimage.

    Nice find! Cant wait to see how the restoration turns out. As always sent pics. I especially like those Stanwells. Hope they turn out great for you!

    Those are going to look great when you clean them up. The oom paul up top, and the rusticated Stanwell on the bottom really caught my eye. Great score!

    "Some nice old smokers" I would call that a MAJOR understatement! I really like that old E. Wilke in the first picture. What is the Bulldog in the second picture? And the third picture, the hard to find Sixten Ivarsson "Boat" shape, and a nice old Reg. No. Billiard, not to shabby!

    Looks like some Petersons in the second picture?

    Looks like a nice little collection there.

    Looks like you scored some classic wood. I like the Kaywoodie pot and the Stanwell Handmade a lot.

    Well done on the acquisitions! The top three pipes look like they each received about the same abuse as the others in the photo. Scorched rims, battered rims, and vulcanite never treated.
    They should clean up well, but you may want to address the dings on the rim, and there are folks here who know how to do that. I like the Wilke and the Dunhill Prince (?) the most.

    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.

    Thanks everyone.
    A closer inspection showed me that at least two of these are far beyond my repair and restoration abilities.

    I'm going to post some pics of stamping for you nomenclature nuts. I am one
    Hopefully this post works.

    Pic # 1 is a Dunnie Prince shape FE. It is so badly charred inside the chamber. I put it to the side until I have the time to come up with a repair plan.

    Next is an E. Wilke that I also love the shape of. It's smoked hard but should clean up nicely.

    Kaywoodie Uncle Paul which is stamped London England. Pretty neat I thought.

    Under that is a Kaywoodie Standard military mount with a four digit code.

    Pic # 2 has a Jeantet Luxe bent bull dog. This one has also been put aside. It has a crack that goes through the shank. I'll get to repair it some day.

    Next are two K&P Peterson's System Standards.

    Pic # 3 has a rusticated Stanwell 20 Sixten shape and a shape 66 Hand Made Selected Briar.


    I'll tell you, I adore all these pipes. I'm really in love with the Stanwell 20 shape. It's an honor for me to have that one.

    I started cleaning up the Stanwell Selected Broad 66 because it seems to be the most straightforward clean up out of the bunch. I'll post pics as I get them prettied up. Can't wait to smoke them!

    Congratulations with a great haul. I've been looking for that Sixten Ivarsson Boat for several months, but so far, no luck.

    They should all look great once cleaned up. There is a humbling wealth of info on these forums to get you set up.

    I’m with Dave, the Sixten boat and the Wills skater are my favourites as well.

    Great haul!

    Many thanks everyone. It makes me happy to share this stuff with you like minded folks. No one around me comes close to understanding what it's like to get a haul like that in.
    There certainly is a humbling wealth of information on the forums about all things pertaining to pipes and restoration. I certainly might be asking for some guidance along the way as I get into cleaning and these up. I don't want to destroy any of them.

    Far better than the average lot, to say the least. I hope several turn out to be completely restorable, in which case you hit the bullseye.

    UPDATED: I think I got it... It's a 1959 but sold in 1960, thus the 9 and the 0.

    If anyone can confirm or deny please let me know!

    Great stuff right there! The Dunhill looks to me to be a 1960, however, what is the stamping between the D in England and the underlined 0?
