Default The Twelve Dunhills of Christmas...

So I think I just hit the mother lode and my PAD meter went off the charts when I seen this listing on Craigslist.

It was listed as 10 Dunhill Pipes, 5 other fine pipes, 4 Pipe racks, and one Pipe humidor. - $200.

I offered $300 and was able to cut the line in front of two other people who wanted them.

It turns out it was actually 12 Dunhills, 1 Kirsten Metal, 1 Ehrlich, and 1 no-name cob.

The Dunhills are from the late 70's and early 80's from what I can gather from the date codes I can actually read. They are a mix of Shells, Cumberlands, Tanshells, Bruyere, Redbark, etc. One of the tenons was already cracked off in the mortise of one, but all the others came out pretty smoothly.

Looks like I will be busy trying my hand at pipe restoration for the next few weeks!!

Here are the pictures from the CL posting, I will update with better pics as I take a closer look.

I once placed a bid on Craig's List, but she never showed up.

Looks like a nice score. Congrats.

That is a brilliant score. Clean the Dunnies up and they fetch North of $200 each.
I've restored a few and they smoke incredibly well - the quality really shows.
Congrats on the find!
