Seems like there is always something there. Nothing great this time, just a trio of three English Mades.
In the front is a Dulwich straight grain, a brand I had never heard of, but appears to be of good pedigree.
The middle pipe a Duncan. This is the second one of those in my collection. It also seems to be of slightly uncommon quality.
The rear pipe is stamped Mountain Climb and 9465, which is a GBD number for this same shape.

All three could use a good a little restoration but for now I think just a good cleaning and polishing will do.

Don't you love antique shop finds. How much did they cost you?
The pipes were six bucks each.
I've scoped out 3 or 4 other local places. When I ask them about pipes they always look at me like I just asked for punch in the face. I'm glad I've got this one store that haves something for me just about every time I go in.

tuold: Love the haul and at a very nice price.
Like you, I enjoy browsing in antique shops whenever I can and wherever I can. I once picked up a 4-dot Sasieni for $20. I still think that was a steal.

Very true and that's why I don't mind taking my wife to antique/collectibles shops and malls. My best find so far has been a La Savinelli Giubileo D'Oro 510 KS (bulldog) that I paid $3.00 for.
Like Tuold, I keep searching for a Dunhill or a real antique Meerschaum.
