    It really pays to watch all of these different "yard sale" type websites besides CList.

    A guy was selling some stuff from his fathers estate on one of the sites. After some discussion and looking through what he had I ended up with all of this:

    W.O. Larsen:

    Teddy Knudsen:

    Becker (posted in another thread):

    2 Dunhill Tampers:

    2 Mont Blanc Cigar Cases:

    The 5 pipe racks are Dunhill and there were also 2 Barling pipes and 3 Sasieni pipes.

    The Larsen, Knudsen, Becker, and briar Dunhill tamper are being sent off for professional restoration although they don't need much work. I'll de-oxidize the stems on the Barlings and Sasienis myself and polish them up. The tobacco was from several jars and just dumped into the bags and is dried and crispy beyond belief.

    Very nice score! An eagle grade Knudsen!

    Very impressive. As sablebrush says, an Eagle grade Teddy, also a Pearl grade W.O. Larsen, the Becker, and three Four Dot Sasieni's. What are the two billiards between the Larsen and the Becker in your picture?

    edit: I guess those are the Barling's.

    I'm jealous! The grain on that Knudsen is incredible.

    Gorgeous pipes

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

    "we shall have to share pipes, as good friends must at a pinch'....'I keep a treasure or two near my skin, as precious as rings to me. Here's one: my old wooden pipe. And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."

    This is the kind of luck that doesn't come around very often. I am surprised at how well the pipes have been kept.
    I hope you will honour the original owner by keeping them and smoking them and passing them on to the next generation.

    This was actually a site called offerup. My wife uses the site to sell stuff (the kind of stuff you'd find in an average yard sale) from around the house.

    I would take a break but the guy says he has a ton of Dunhill and meershcaum pipes but the are still at his dad's place in another state. Hoping to get some pictures and maybe pick up a few more things although he seems a little reluctant to make any real deals on the Dunhill stuff.

    He has some of the Dunhill ceramic store jars here but they're not my style and I really don't feel like trying to bargain with him over his asking price but I'm sure he'd make a reasonable deal if I bought all of them from him. He also had a ton of Jost's, Comoys, a few Petersons, and some others as well. They're in really good shape but the stems are heavily oxidized and I'd only be buying them to cleanup and resell.

    Oh my oh my oh my!! Well done! That's a haul and a half. If you don't want the Barlings I know someone who does....

    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.

    Can I ask what you type in to find pipes? When I try to find pipes at all those "yardsale" sites, I just find plumbing pipes or marijuana pipes. I have yet to find the right verbage to yield any results.

    "I believe that many who find that 'nothing happens' when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a tough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand"

    I usually get a bunch of garbage but I start with single words:

    Pipe
    Tobacco
    Smoke
    Smoking

    Tobacco usually retuns a bunch of "tobacco" colored furniture in addition to occasional pipes.

    Then I move to phrases:

    Tobacco pipe
    Smoking pipe

    When all else fails I switch to brand names such as Dunhill.

    I believe I was searching the word Dunhill when I found the ad for Dunhill pipe stands. It was mainly a matter of probably 99% dumb luck and 1% persistence.
