    Congrats on the neat Petes, Paul! I'm sure they'll be fine smokers.

    Way too EXPENSIVE for some vintage Pete's. Not silver capped or anything to bring up the value besides there age!!!I myself would be way more selective before delving into the world of Vintage Petersons.

    They both have sterling shank caps. Pre-Republic pipes are exactly what to look for in the Peterson's world.

    Really? Geezer must think it's still '4 dollars to the pound'.
    Nice petes for a nice price, Paul. Good Show!
