    Great idea smokeybear. Here's mine (I own two, one an ebay win and the other a generous gift from Foggymountain). Both of these types live up to the Dunhill hype.

    Here's a rack of my seven Dunhills. Mainly billiards. Mainly shells. Ranging from 1928 to 2011.

    The pipe eases you into the present moment - savor your pipe & you'll savor this moment.

    I refuse to photograph pipes today, but here are 5 Dunhill Churchwarden's in case you didn't see tham when I posted the picture some time ago. They all smoke well, I like the #1, on the bottom, the best.

    bentmike, that is a really cool birth year Dunhill, I wish I could find something that nice for mine.

    kashmir, I always love seeing that set, that is about as classic a set of pipes you could ever find.

    nsfisher, yours still has to be the steal of the century, I remember when you first got it.

    Harris,
    The little shell in my rack all the way to the right is a 1917 with a real ivory spot group 1 sized and I picked that up at a yard sale for $1.00 about 15 or so years ago!

    I don't have any Dunhills, but I have several pipes that remind me of Dunhills, and I'm
    studying these photos so that if I ever encounter a Dunhill at a garage sale, flea market,
    or antique place, at a mistakenly low price, I'll know enough to grab it. Fine looking pipes,
    guys.

    Six: I got it so I could go out for a smoke from a bar or restaurant and quickly cover & extinguish the fire when returning. It smokes as well as any Dunhill Bruyere, which is, once broken in, very well. I like the little silver bulldog sculpture on the top. Their silversmith has casting skills. He doesn't just put bands on pipes.

    My little 1926 double patent (no "made in london" mark). Now, all I need is a 1971 birth year and I'll be happy.

    I have several Dunhills, but my pride and joy is the 2003 Thames Oak No. 359 of 500 made. It is unsmoked, and will remain unsmoked until it goes to my grandsons.

    The Dunhill Apple (01) is a 4103 (Group 4). It has a titanium band and the tamper is from an actual section of the first Roman port facilities built in London in 63 AD.

    I didn't know where to post this one, so I just thought maybe since it was a Former, it could go with the Dunhills. Sorry, mods, if this isn't right. Soon as a folder is made for Formers, I'll move my photos.

    This is the only Former I own. I bought it in the early 2000s. The stem has oxidized a bit, but that's it. It is unsmoked.

    This is my one and only Dunhill. It was gifted to me by a member-timely- I believe she goes by here. for refinishing another Dunhill for her. She also sent me a cool lighter! My pipe is a Shellbriar 35 FT. It's missing the "white spot" and has some toothmarks,both easily fixed. I've burned a few bowls in it and find it smokes as well as my Grabows!
    Astrid,being the fine lady she is, not only gave me the Dunhill and lighter but expected to pay me for working on her pipe! That didn't happen!!

    Those are all beautiful pipes! I have not had the pleasure of even smoking threw such a pipe. I have wanted to ask for one for Christmas are birthday for years. But with government pay and me looking over to see my 4 beautiful girls and all there wants and needs it seems that ill never get one. I have tried to pick them up on the Bay but they just sore way beyond my price point. Maybe one day. Love looking though so please post more pics.

    There have been many discussions on whether or not Dunhills are worth the extra dough. I feel that if you can afford it, usually the answer is yes. That said, they have hits and misses just like other brands, but you're more likely to get a winner than a dud.

    Still, if the cost makes you think twice, then I'd stick with a Sav or Stanwell, which represent much better values when it comes to simply enjoying a pipe.

    You have shared beautiful pipes with us.

    There is just something about having/smoking a Dunhill. Maybe its psychological. I love mine.

    tsangtino - that's an amazing collection you got there! Thanks for sharing.

    As for the meer, I think they're fairly rare, but a few have popped up lately,
    keep an eye open and it'll get in your line of sight someday soon...

    DUNHILL BLOCK MEERSCHAUM BILLIARD PIPE ** max. ×5-10 TIMES USED ** ULTRA RARE

    PIPE DUNHILL MEERSCHAUM PIPE - 1985/90 - EXTREMELY RARE

    ...also pretty interesting is this meer-lined shell:

    Dunhill Meerschaum Lined Shell Briar (126 F/T) (3S) (1965)

    I only have one good Dunhill thus far, but it has convinced me that I'd like to have a few more for sure. I used to pay no mind to Dunhills or the mania they induce, but now I'm in the grips of White-Spot Fever, I'm afraid. I'm glad I took the plunge on a Dunnie, it has rewarded me greatly.

    Mine is a 1962 Shell 252

    I love your pipe! There's something about the vintage shells.

    Here are more pictures from my collection

    I just picked up the set of Dunhill 2 Flame pipes (a Panel and a freehand - carved by Colin Fromm) - it was a one-off for the NYC store.

    Dang those are beautiful tsangtino. I have a couple to go off to Norwoods soon. One for a tenon replacement and the other for the bit of restoration that proved too much for me. They'll be posted when they get back. The only other one I have does not deserve to be posted here as it is absolutely trashed...a near burnout and a couple internal cracks that are slowly being built up with fireplace mortar.

    Thanks Captain.

    Please post any Dunhills you have!
    Even the burnouts and cracked ones. They 're all nice - especially vintage pipes that are damaged - which tells their own story.

    I have a burned out one as well which I have encased and displayed in my workplace - greatest work of art ever!!

    Wow awsome pipes guys, I can't wait to purchase my first Dunhill pipe

    “After some time he felt for his pipe. It was not broken, and that was something. Then he felt for his pouch, and there was some tobacco in it, and that was something more. Then he felt for matches and he could not find any at all, and that shattered his hopes completely.”

    ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

    I thought I'd add my latest Dunhill, a birth year '62 shell blast. This pipe came to me in excellent shape and is a superb smoker. I am now the (very) pleased owner of 3 Dunhills.

    Ok, here are my Dunhills so far.

    The last one is my 1966 birth year shell. The ODA is 1963.

    Here is one of my early antique store finds. I found this patent Dunhill and paid about 5 bucks for it. I really lucked out that day.

    1930 Dunhill's Shell Lovat
    The stem is chewed through but it is so comfortable I'm leaving it alone. This pipe is a fan-friggin'-tastic smoker.

    1949 Dunhill FE Root patent prince
    Absolutely incredible grain on this one, symmetrical on both sides, with birdseye all along the bottom and front of the bowl.

    I'll be restoring this one soon:

    1921 Dunhill Bruyere marked "Inner Tube Patented 1914"
