Hi,

I'm going to update this thread as I acquire more Pete's but here is what I have so far in my little collection. Enough for a seven day set now :)

Here are my first three babies

A Deluxe 11s, Deluxe 9s and Deluxe XL90

These were followed by a Deluxe 998

Next there came the Supreme Gold Mounted XL02

Yesterday arrived the St Patrick's Day 2012 999

I'm very pleased with what I have acquired so far and am very lucky to have two pipes that are classified as high grades (only a few per year of these pipes are produced because of the quality of briar required to make them)

They all smoke great and the deluxes feel like class.

The st paddy's is a great smoker and there was no breaking in required as it came pre-carbonated. I think this little beauty is going to become a mainstay smoker for me as I also love the 998 and 999 shapes.

If PSU is received well I will be pulling the trigger on the Royal Irish 999 that Bob at P&C has, so fingers crossed for a good launch :)

Ya know, for that particular occasion you should really do a video of the "Inaugural Lighting of the PSU Mascot Pipe"!

Carl,

That gold mounted XL02 is phenomenal...BEAUTIFUL pipe and very fitting of "PSU Mascot" briar!

Fittingly as it is coming up to St Paddy's Day and Pete's are Irish, I am "GREEN" with envy.
(insert growns from the group now). Nice collection. I only have an accumulation.

Uh-oh, it looks like I have seven of 'em too. Does that mean I have to get another every time Carl does? Please say yes. :)

Mine are here: Peterson page (http://ajlowry.net/p/pipes/index_files/Page1019.htm)

Very nice Carl. I have a few (13) petes as well, although the highest grade is a royal Irish. You have some quality pipes there.

Pete who???

Seriously Carl...that XL02 just made me shudder...I'll be back in a minute...

I would love a couple of Royal Irish (999 and XL02) but at nearly $300 a pop they are still out of my reach at the moment :(

The supreme was an estate and I got it for a song really.

Mine is a royal Irish roslare they go for about 150 I paid 60 for mine off ebay. That is my best score to date.
