Was wondering if anyone had an idea of the dates and maybe values of these. I just picked them up at an estate sale. Both are unsmoked.

Dunhill 001 Collector

Sasieni 8 Dot. Fishtail signature. Other side says LE66 F Hand. Seal is broken, but the tag appears signed and stamped, "Limited Edition"

I can't comment on the values, but I'm reasonably sure that the Sasieni is a limited edition commemorative made by the successor owners of Sasieni in the early 1980's IIRC.

Yes , so it look to me. About the dunhill , it seems like one of those made in or around 1975 wich were seen by then as low quality. I do not know the value in the market but i do not like any of the two.

That's correct. They don't come up very frequently. If sold by one of the premier ebay pipe resellers, it would bring over $500 (if unsmoked)

The Dunhill should be easy. It's one of the few British factory, maybe the only other than Parker, that has a date stamp. Should be on the side of the shank opposite the logo stamp.
Thanks! I didn't know that. Looks like '20. Obviously 2020.

That's not how the Dunhill date stamps work. That would make too much sense. Could be 1980. Here's a dating guide. However, if you post a picture of the stampings one of the Dunhill nerds on the forum will be quickly able to tell you the year.

The Sasieni- less than 100 or so made.

I’ve seen 2 come up for sale in the past 10 years. Last one was 2018 or so, and it sold for $1700.

Of course times change. Whether or not you would get that now is hard to say.

You posted in this thread back in 2022, I think that was the last sighting.
