    Paul, I would tend to agree with you about the stem. I seems (?) the shape could be had with both a short, or longer stem (?). Your pipe is marked as an F/T yes? However, look at the long stemmed example, the taper of the stem in profile from shank to button.

    Ive been looking since last year for a birth year but not many to be found and the ones I have seen were either out of my price bracket or looked a bit worn out.This one was affordable to me so I snapped it up.
    I hope it doesnt disappoint when I receive it

    I must say, the stummel does look to be in excellent condition, which is a little more important than the stem in the big picture.

    yes Dave it is marked F/T ,I have been searching google for a picture a long stem ES F/T .
    This one does look like a long stem one and as you say the line from stummel to bit is a straighter line.I wont have the pipe in my hands for a couple of weeks but will inspect it more closely then

    the pipe length on the listing and the one on smoking pipes site match so at least thats something

    I'm not sure what the 'official' difference is either. I just thought yours with a shorter shank & longer stem was more of a Liverpool.
    Somebody on here will put us right I'm sure.
