    Peterson K briar 999 Rhodesian

    This is a puzzle to me,stamped A Peterson product made in Ireland but with 1969 hallmarks
    Was it an old stummel used at a later dateor did they just use the ireland stamp later than 1947 ie in 1969

    The K briar is a lower end pipe, priced 5/6 in the 1937 price list ( Kapet 7/6, De Luxe 15,-).
    Those I have seen have been without a band. Maybe it is like I did once, took a band from an old smoked up BBB and put it on another BBB brought in the 80ties.
    Nice pipe !
