    Seeing the One Dot Banjo posted it made me pull this off the rack and look at it. It has all the right stuff, I think. It's a shape 30 and its barely been smoked. It has great Birdseye too.

    That /20 patent number was for the US market and I believe only used in the early 1920's. Very nice indeed!

    Ash, looks proper, and correct. Of note with the One Dot pipes, are the shape codes, they are completely unto themselves. The shape number 30 would later (by the time of the Four Dot ~ 1924) be used for the Worcester, a very different shape.

    I love it when a Sasieni One Dot comes out of hiding. Throw in some Davish insight and you've got a doubly satisfying thread.

    The /20 patent was used until 1950. The English patent was /28 IIRC.

    That IS a gorgeous pipe!

    I should have said - the /20 patent number and One Dot was only used in the early 20's - right?

    Ash: related to another One Dot post, can you show a few close-up shots of the stinger?

    Some Sasieni stinger pictures,

    This One Dot (not mine) has Made in England across the top of the shank at the stem/shank join,

    Another One Dot with a broken stem (mine),

    and this one, also mine, the stinger is in what is not the original stem (should be a One Dot)

    Al, I don't own the pipe anymore. Member Tshiraldi now owns it. Evidently GDilbos thinks the stem isn't original, it's a good repair, but not original, because the stinger isn't threaded.

    I. Do. Not. Know.

    In the other thread, it appears that there is evidence that not all the stingers were threaded.

    GDibos thinks the stem isn't original, it's a good repair, but not original, because the stinger isn't threaded.

    My rememberer doesn't remember saying that. I've seen a fair number of legit old Sasieni stems which have had their stinger removed and the hole smoothed/reamed. I even have a couple in my rack.

    But... if I did say that, it was almost certainly as one of three points, the other two being the button (not enough to go on in this photo to be conclusive, but what can be seen looks wrong), and the unmistakable "It's a replacement!!!" profile.
