    I clicked quote on Russ's post. For some reason, yours carried over from my previous double-quote into this one too. Don't know how that happened. Sorry. I understood your point.

    Yeah, that happens to me sometimes. No worries, Ed. It fixes itself after several hours.

    Lovely pipe!

    Anyhoo, the Pete arrived yesterday as scheduled, safe and sound.



    According to that Peterson Project, Jim, this pipe is indeed from the early Republic Era. 'We believe the earliest stamp of this era was the "Made in England" in a block format since Peterson was using the "Made in Ireland" block format at about the same time on their Irish production pipes.'
