    Continued.

    In the first picture - From top-to-bottom. Left - Karl Erik. Ser Jacopo. Middle - Wiley, Wally Frank Scotland Yard, Astley. Right - 3 Brebbia, Sabatini Limited, Son (unfortunately with a mangled stem.)

    The rest of the pictures are of a Karl Erik pictured in the first, that looks like it is unsmoked. I would like opinions, of course.

    I have a question, do the two Ser Jacopo pipes have the red coral dot on the stem?

    Nice restrained shapes those Karl Erik pipes. Also, I like those two Brebbia Apple shaped pipes at top right.

    The Karl Erik "unsmoked", we might be looking at a bowl coating...? Hard to say without the pipe in hand.

    I have a few more pipes, but they had damage. I had a Ser Jacopo with a huge crack across where the shank and bowl meet. I'll have Anthony look at it and see if it can be fixed. I know that one had the red dot on the stem, I do not remember for the other two. I will have to look when I get to the office tomorrow.

    I am going to be posting pipes the next few days, but I will take some time to show some of the more unique characteristics of the pipes I have shown. Such as the Caminetto/Radice/Ascorti stamped pipes, I'll look at the Preben Holm pipes more closely, and I will look for any other defining features on the other pipes.

    I'm sure it can, but it's probably not the best way to go with it. Invasive repairs don't usually make a lot of sense for a pipe intended for the market. There's a lot of shoddy repair work out there and there's no way for a buyer to really know what he's getting. They'll be cautious and you'll take a hit on the value either way. So, it's probably best to let it go as is, disclose the damage in the selling details, and take whatever the market considers to be a fair value for it. Let the buyer put it into the hands of someone they trust and you'll greatly reduce your liability.

    I've considered that I have been gifted with an abundance of wealth in regard to the pipe-world, and I don't need to sell every single pipe.

    From Top-to-Bottom, Right-to-Left. -

    Dalla Gemma Maxima Fiamatta Zaffiro. This pipe has a lot of "character" with numerous visible scratches, and the bottom of the bit, has been...bitten off.

    Maxima L1. This one looks fine overall. It has some heavy dings on the upper right side of the bowl, but that's about it.

    Maxima L2. Same dings as the L1, with some damage to the rim, and this is the one with the large crack.

    The two on the right in the second last pic above have red dots. Are they Blatter's?
    The best teachers tell you where to look but not what to see.

    An update to the pipes I showed pictures of. 3 of the Prominence pipes are A2, one is A1. The broken stem Preben Holm is Grade 5.

    There are 5 Ascorti Business, 3 Caminetto Business, 2 Radice Rinds, 1 Radice Rubino, 5 Caminetto Business Ascorti, Radice, Cucciago pipes, and 1 Ascorti 01 pipe.

    4 of the Preben Holm pipes do not have grades on them. All of the Preben Holm pipes are "hand cut". Grades range is 1, 2, 3, 4, 7.

    You must forgive my ignorance, for I know not what that is.
