    Searching for an affordable Dunhill

    Aye Lads, I be in search of an affordable Dunhill Full Bent pipe. I would hope to get it around the birth year o 1955. Finish is not relevant, condition is. I'm not looking for something that will be in need of to much restoration. Just looking to, wot's the term when Ye goes to the pound n gets a dog, oh yea, "Looking to give it a new forever home". Any reasonable offer will be considered. My budget is to try to stay below, as they say in baseball, The Mendosa Line", which comes in at $200. Fleabay tends to start nice n low then migrates up to the prices close to new.

    I thank Ye in advance mates...

    Good luck with that. It's tough ask. When you say Full Bent, I assume you mean Oom Paul, Hungarian? Shape 591.

    Aye Dave, The OOM Paul is preferred but will accept a "normal" bend as "S" shaped or any other that will fit the budget.

    I gave up on looking for a good Dunhill in that price range, John. They either have condition issues, are too small (group 1), or have replacement stems. I would have to increase my budget to $250 or $275 just to find a halfway decent one.

    John, if this (1980 Dunhill) is the sort of thing you are looking for, send me a PM?
