I have a pipe that I really like and was wondering what type it is since I've never seen the manufacturer's name before. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! I'll put images on but the lettering seems to say "Swede Grain" and Nestor's 999 or Nesior's 999 and also has "Made in Ireland" on it. There are grooves on the bottom of the bowl and I think it's called a bent bulldog. I'd post the pictures, but I don't know how to do that yet. Sorry.

Don't know much about them, but here's a link to a few more.

Nestor cigars which are made in Esteli, Nicaragua.

Nothing on Pipedia about them.

These are three photos I took of my pipe--sorry--I think you have to copy and past to see 'em. Actually they open when you click them.

Yup, that's a Peterson made pipe for sure. Almost anything that says made in Ireland is, but with the shape number that definitely is a Pete.

Probably $40-60. It's a desirable shape with pre-republic COM stamp, but it is a second so that holds the value a little lower.

Any idea of the value of a Ben Wade Brogue?

If you, the OP, open them in photobucket, Right or Command click on the image, then paste the URL into the IMG box, you'll get this:

By doing so, the photo will appear in the post and others won't have to click and wait for it to load. Or endure the p-bucket ads/spam.
