This BBB bent billiard doesn't have the usual Birmingham hallmarks or date letter. Instead, it's simply marked "BBB" with "AFC" in fancy script, so I'm guessing it's an American-made BBB from the College Point, Long Island factory, made sometime between 1914 and the early 1920s.

The cross-grain has some nice birdseye and the pipe overall is simply pristine, having been smoked only a few times. I thought the rim might have been topped because the edges are so sharp, but I don't see any evidence of that having been done. There are barely any "handling marks," either. It must have been smoked a few times, stored in a safe place and forgotten.
