    Congratulations, Nigel. What a find, and for 15; that would have bought me a 50 grs of tobacco here.

    Well done Nigel, I got one from Ashton Marketing Ltd the UK agent in Sept. 1990. The Olde Wood TVF shape 4229 apple - very good pipe with the Barling saddle stem. 45 - the guinea grain was 30

    A 'barling bargain' I'd say! Nice one, Nigel.
    St. Bruno simply satisfies!

    That's one hell of a great snag! A lovely example of a sweet shape. You did amazingly well.

Does anyone have any idea of dating?

    You did well. Definitely made in the Barling factory. The TVF on the other side puts it no earlier than 1964 or 1965. Beautiful grain on this one. No stampings other than the script Barling, the model number and the TVF?
