    I have a pipe that I really like and was wondering what type it is since I've never seen the manufacturer's name before. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! I'll put images on but the lettering seems to say "Swede Grain" and Nestor's 999 or Nesior's 999 and also has "Made in Ireland" on it. There are grooves on the bottom of the bowl and I think it's called a bent bulldog. I'd post the pictures, but I don't know how to do that yet. Sorry.

    Don't know much about them, but here's a link to a few more.
    Nestor cigars which are made in Esteli, Nicaragua.

    Nothing on Pipedia about them.

    Yup, that's a Peterson made pipe for sure. Almost anything that says made in Ireland is, but with the shape number that definitely is a Pete.

    That is awesome! I pretty much certain that's a Peterson 999.

    If you, the OP, open them in photobucket, Right or Command click on the image, then paste the URL into the IMG box, you'll get this:

    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.

    Probably $40-60. It's a desirable shape with pre-republic COM stamp, but it is a second so that holds the value a little lower.

    Do you intend to smoke it?

    I wonder, are those lines original or have they been carved on by a previous owner?

    Regards,

    Jay.

    The lines have to have been done as a decoration when new--they are very symmetrical.

    Any idea of the value of a Ben Wade Brogue?

    By doing so, the photo will appear in the post and others won't have to click and wait for it to load. Or endure the p-bucket ads/spam.
