    Bing's Personal Pipes on sale at ebay

    Interesting. Did you guys happen to see mine for sale? Merchant Service Special? I came into three of them. I really hesitated listing it, but hopefully someone will enjoy it. All three I own have had imperfections in the briar, but no filler was used. Can anyone chime in on that? Most pipes...

    Early Era Sasieni 1-Dot Shape 19S

    I am still interested in the football shape made in England. I think that is a "later" style stamping as the earlier ones are linear and also say London made. I'd love to see dating on that stamping alone. The dot looks light blue... I'd say pre-war definitely if that's the case. I have a few...

    Barling Question

    So is Barling's arched over Make pre and trans and post trans? Just inquiring about 4 digit pipes that begin with "5". They have Barling Design "design in script" on the opposite side of the cross on the stem.

    Pipes for Active Duty Military?

    I thought I read in the past that there was someone who sends pipes and tobacco to active duty members? Can someone point me in their direction? I have quite a few pipes that I would like to donate to them. If they have any paperwork/flyers I can post it at the Veterans Hall too. Thanks...

    Greetings from Texas

    Welcome! I like to call that the Uncle Buck Plan: cigarettes, then cigars, then pipes (from the movie with John Candy).
