Ok Peterson fans, time to get pissed at my click bait title. Although it is true, there is some history behind this pipe, but I'm not sure what it is. I can't seem to resist buying these type of pipes, so bear with me. This Pete seems to be a rather old pipe from the Dublin&London series. It's not a pre Republic pipe, but still looks to have some age on it. I'm not sure what the deal is with this series, although they seem to be in current production, but look nothing like this one. Now, about the condition... I'm not sure what happened to this pipe, maybe it was being smoked by Dick Cheney's friend while they were quail hunting, or a puppy got ahold of it, but I'm pretty sure it's not a factory finish. It was so cheap and has lots of character, plus I'm sure there's an interesting history here. I did a thorough clean up and sanitized it, and then just polished and waxed it. So here it is, warts and all.
