    Working with old, rare and/or collectible pieces is something that you get used to, Crawford. I suppose that it's similar to working with electricity. If you're smart, you have a healthy dose of fear when you first start out but the fear turns to respect with some experience.

    The issue of trust is the biggest hurdle in this line of work. Once you're over it, you're golden, but you have to be willing to prove your mettle first.

    Thanks for all the kind words, gentlemen. It really was an honor and privilege to work with this one. I now have some historical knowledge that I didn't have before. It's very cool when a pipe makes you smarter.

    I think the pipe is made of much sterner stuff than I am. If I look half as good at half its age I'll be more than happy.

    If I look 1/10th as good at 127 as that pipe does, I'll be a happy man! ;)
    Take care and check six!
