I think I’m looking to dump a handful of no-name briars on ebay. Wondered if anyone had any input on whether I should group them in a lot or list them individually. Thanks, all!

As a buyer I prefer to buy single pipes with 12 distinct photos clearly showing the pipe from 12 different angles. However those pipes generally have a name stamped

I would think the best price you get for no name pipes is small groups of 3-4 pipes. That way you will get the attention of new smokers on a budget trying to build a rotation.

Large groups of 10+ pipes will be bought mostly by restorers and resellers

I've priced items to sell, but I've had good luck selling on the board. I've course, to a point, I'll keep lowering the price until the buyers buy. . .Did that when I was selling off my hoard of 80 tins of Irish Flake, for which, ostensibly, I could have gotten $750.00, but made a hesitant buyer bite by selling them for $400.00.
