    Newest Pipe I Won at Auction

    Less than two hours ago the Postman delivered my one and only pipe for this Year. I won a BEAUTIFUL Preben Holm Private Collection Fancy Grade 404 hand carved full bent Pipe. It came with a beautiful fine leather Pipe Case signed by the man Himself!!!! On top of all that it is UNSMOKED!!!!

    Jon, do we have any idea how many Private Collection pipes were made?

    I know that records were kept on the Private Collection Pipes but where they are with His survivors. You have to remember Preben has been dead for over thirty three years and things I'm sure have been lost or forgotten over time. His Brother would be the one who knows or maybe Poul???? At least I know that this one won't be up for sale until I die or that it isn't on its way to the Orient!!!!!

    Dave, thanks for posting the photos for me!!

    That's one fine pipe, Jon. I particularly like the finish and grain.
