    Picked these up today, separate auctions all but one under $10. Two of the bulldogs are unsmoked, until this evening, and the slim billiard might have had a couple of bowls through it.The names are unfamiliar to me, Pickwick Arms, London Royal, Bentley, Earl of Essex and Olde London. No great treasures but all should be good smokers.

    Which one is the billiard at lower right, and does it have a shape number or any other markings by any chance?

    Bottom right is marked Earl of Essex, other side says Algerian Briar France. The band is marked 12KT GOLD.... Something else but I can't make it out.

    Looks like a nice stout billiard, esp. for the price. What I was curious about was if it was marked with a shape number, 342. It was just a hunch.

    I can't see any numbers, it's had a rough life but it'll make a great smoker and I don't have to worry about nicks or dings, it's already done for me.

    Nice haul. You can turn up some sublime smokers for not much outlay. Hope these are the ones!

    I've only smoked one of the unsmoked so far, after a good cleaning today I'm pretty stoked, I'll have to work through them this weekend.I've got a Peterson bulldog and two of the Bruyere St Claudes coming this week so I'll be busy.

    Pickwick is on there as Sasieni.

    The Pickwick's a nice one, a couple of small fills. It was unsmoked until yesterday, a good smoker especially for the money.
