A few years ago we found this pipe on the beach of the North Sea. Unfortunately I can't make any good photos of the inscription “kaiserl. Marine" and "Imperator", but I'll try again. Can you please help me date this pipe? Is it a Peterson?

Well if I had to take a wild stab, I’d say they were made to be sold in the onboard tobacco shop of the Imperator class ocean liners operated by the Hamburg American line in the first quarter of the 20th century.

The “hallmarks” on the band are faux and EP stands for Electro Plate.

And no it is not a Peterson.

Yes, that makes sense. The location where we found it also fits. Why do you think the hallmarks are faux?

First of all, the "EP" stands for electroplate. Therefore, not a sterling band so it wouldn't have to be hallmarked in the first place. I'll let someone else take it from there.

I have a pipe with those exact stampings, EP (electro Plate) and the same Faux Hallmarks on the collar. The Stampings on the Briar is Royal, same side as the Stampings on the collar, on the other side it is stamped Made In London England, these stampings are partially covered by the Collar, never ever found out who made it, many London makers used Royal on some ranges. I will try to post a pic when I have time.
