Pre-Transition Barling Special #623265AG
It's a "Special" because of the fine cross grain that runs up &
down both sides of the bowl.  The shape # is a 3 digit "487" &
the size is an EXEL.  Besides being a
Special,  it also has the
Ye Olde Wood & T.V.F. designations.  The stem logo is almost
entirely buffed out, with only the merest vestiges visible, but it is
clearly there, declaring this to be an original stem.  On the rim is
a bit of normal carbon residue.  All-in-all, a fine example of good
old Barling briar.  Open draw.  Used.
5.5" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $325.
1958 Dunhill ODA Shell 835 #424144GL (SOLD)
This large Billiard has a bowl rim that is crisp and clean, sharp
nomenclature, a mark-free stem & a wide-open draw.  It will
probably be the best smoker in any collection, and doubly so if
the blend contains latakia.  That's my guess, anyway. Used.
6.5" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 67 grams. $425.
Charatan Selected #112304BT
With its unique canted bowl, this is a quintessential, hand-cut
Charatan from the golden age of that marque.  Bird's Eye grain
on the rim, and the shank & bottom of the bowl, the "F.H." stamp
for "Free Hand" and the Lane "L," all work to make this a great
addition to a Charatan collector's arsenal.  It's a Grp. 5, the
nomenclature is clean & clear and the "CP" is on the stem. Used
6.75" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 52 grams. $175.
Peterson Silver Spigot #227298CO (SOLD)
The hallmark letter is tiny, but it appears to be an "F" and so it
may be a 1991.  It's a Grp 3 in exc. cond., actually near-new,
with an open draw.  All the nomenclature is on the silver.  Used.
4.75" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 38 grams.  $125.
Northern Briar Rox Cut Premier #821114
The draw is open and a cleaner goes through to the bottom of
the chamber, although with my old, bent test cleaner I had to
turn it a couple of times.  It's a large Grp. 5 or small Grp 6 size.
Did I mention that the condition is excellent?  It is.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 63 grams. $95.
Peterson's Premier #42449  (SOLD...I think)
Grp 3 size, in exc. cond., with an open draw & sterling ferrule.
4.4" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 48 grams. Used.$75
1940 Pat. # Shell #42424RF
While on the phone recently with legendary pipe repair/restore
man Ronni B, we were talking about the historical value of col-
lecting WWII era pipes.  It does not appear to be a category that
attracts attention, although there are so many interesting,
diverse pieces that can be amassed.  As this does not have
a Pat. # that indicates it was made in the U.S., it must have been
made in England...during the Blitz?  This is a historically
significant pipe and in exc. cond.  It's a Grp. 3.  Dig it.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 5/8 oz., 19 grams. $450.
Ashton XX Pebble Grain #1112127 (SOLD 11/2/18)
Silly me, I forgot to photograph the other side of the bowl.  No
matter, really, on this well grained sandblast.  The briar is
clearly hard and the blast displays tight grain all around.  The
cond. is exc. for both stem, bowl & chamber.  It's a Grp. 4 in size
& the draw is open.  I think it's from 1992, 'cause there's a "12"
after the "England," but there's also an extra 2 before the "12.
5.75" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grans. Used. $145
Comoy's Blue Riband #424114GL
This pipe needs an experienced, gentle smoker.  While the rim
and most of the chamber are in very good condition, it has
been smoked hot.  If poorly treated, it could burn through.  If
treated carefully, it will last indefinitely.  The stem is a
replacement & the draw is open.  The taste is was not
subjected to aromatics or even latakia.  Used.
5.75" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 34 grams. $45.
Barling #1123011BT (SOLD 12/3/18)
I forgot to photograph the other side of the bowl.  I wouldn't
concern myself about it if I were you.  It's no more or less spec-
tacular than the side you can see.  I mean, it's not a spectacular
pipe, is it?  It's fine, and will provide fine smokes.  The shape #
is 4635, with a Script "Barling."  It's a Grp. 5 size in exc. cond.,
although the stem logo is missing (buffed off?).  Used.
5.4" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams. $35.
Northern Briars Rox Cut Regal 4 #821164
Grp 4 size with open draw and in the handsome style of English
classic shapes.  The way the slit is cut in the button of the stem,
acrylic appears to be the stem material, although it looks & feels
like vulcanite to me.  The pipe is unsmoked.  New.
6.25" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 47 grams. $165.
Askwith Morta #112353AC
A large Morta, with a wide-open draw and in near-new cond.  I
think it was smoked once.  The chamber is deed, obviously, but
because the walls are so thick (over 4/10") the tobacco capa-
city is not overwhelming.  Doesn't both the morbid name of the
wood and the color demand some spice?  Askwith does it here
with his stemwork.  That yellow, and black horizontal linear
pattern adds a wonderfully balancing touch to the strong vertical
aspect of the bowl.  The English aren't completely dead.  Used.
6" long, bowl 2.75" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 73 grams. $225.
Taylor Made #112340BT (SOLD 12/3/18)
An early Bill Taylor production in a Grp. 6 size.  The cond. is
exc. and the draw is open.  As Bill was undoubtedly still working
for Dunhill at the time, it's no coincidence that he chose a white
dot, albeit on the side of the stem, to use as a stem logo.  He
was treading very near a lawsuit, I would imagine.  Used.
5.25" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 74 grams. $75.
1933 Dunhill Root #821183  (RESERVED)
What a pain in the ass to describe.  First of all, I don't see any
crack in the inside of the shank, so the repair band is for the
crack that goes along mostly the top of the shank on the
outside.  Then, the guy that owned this pipe, a Dr. Orahood as I
understand it, etched his name on the shank, as was his wont
with all the pipes he owned, essentially ruining them for anyone
else.  Ach, dem doctors.  Enough, precious little, of the patent
number is visible for me to determine the date of production, but
the stem is not original, although it still has tooth marks on the
top & bottom of the stem...none deep enough to compromise
the stem's stability.  Happily, the rim and chamber are in good,
original condition.  BTW, what is left of the nomenclature is
buffed down, but legible.  Use of a lens is suggested.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 37 grams.  $135.
1963 Dunhill Root #821193ME
Since everything else is fine with this pipe, let me start with the
part about which I have a question, the stem.  I'm not sure it's
original.  I'm guessing not.  It's the size of the dot about which
I'm suspicious.  Yet, it's a very nice stem, it is a fishtail, as the
"F/T" that is stamped on the shank says it should be, so
perhaps I am being overly cautious.  The nomenclature is no
longer crisp, but it is all legible and it is a Grp. 4.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 31 grams. $325.
Orlik DeLuxe #424158GL  (SOLD 9/17/18)
In exc. cond., with pristine stem & open draw.  Grp. 4 size.
Classic shape & classic old English name. Used.
5.45" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 29 grams. $65.
Pulvers' Prior Briar
P.O. Box 85
Los Altos, CA  

(650) 965-7403
Ferndown Spigot 3 Star #112314TT
Why did I bother photographing and then posting the front of this
bowl?  There's nothing to see behind this dark stain.  It's a Grp. 7
size, and my thumb does fit into the chamber, despite thick walls.
The draw is open and there are minor dings on the bowl.  New.
5.9" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 3 oz., 84 grams. Unsmoked. $325
Barling Pre-Transition EXEXEL #82151
The bowl & inner chamber are in very good cond.  The same can-
not be said about the stem, or even the nomenclature.  There are
bite marks on the top & bottom of the stem, & although they're not
deep, they are fairly numerous.  Nor has the logo been allowed to
remain on the stem (which does, however, seem to be original).  
Despite being buffed down, all the nomenclature is legible & the
shape number of the pipe is 276.  used.
6.5" long, bowl 2.15" tall. Weight:  2 1/8 oz., 61 grams. $175.  
2003 Dunhill Cumberland #62398
Cumberland, or Shell, it makes no difference...As there's no
smooth top that signifies a real Cumberland (by my definition)
this can be looked at as a Shell with a dark brown stain and a
brindle stem.  It's nice.  Wide-open draw, when the metal tube is
removed, Grp. 4 size (shape 4103).  New.
5.5" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 33 grams. $375.
1960 Dunhill Tanshell #821329
A Grp 4 in exc. cond, with a crisp inner rim showing only a little
carbon residue but no wear.  The nomenclature is also clear.
The stem is mark-free & the draw is open.  Used.
5.45" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 37 grams. $350.
Upshall B "FH" & "HC" #227268KM
This might be the elephant in the room.  It is that large. the B
grade is higher than their standard, high quality, P grade & the
grain reflects that.  I don't know what the "HC" stands
for...maybe 'hand cut?'  The condition is excellent, with no wear
on the rim (a little inevitable carbon residue) & no marks on the
stem.  "Extra Large" is stamped on the shank, but that seems
like rather superfluous information to anyone but Paul Bunyan.
7.7" long, bowl 3.4" tall.  Weight: 4 oz., 114 grams. Used. $225.
Barling's Make Ye Olde Wood #26753
The bowl, the rim, the chamber, the nomenclature are all in
exc. cond.  The shape # is a 3 digit 233 and the size is
stamped as EL.  It's about the size and shape of a Dunhill LB.  
The draw is wide-open, but the stem is almost assuredly new,
and the stem logo is definitely newly minted.   Vulcanite. Used
6" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $225.
2001 Dunhill Amber Root  #821314 (SOLD 11/3/18)
Not quite unsmoked, but pretty damn close.  It's given as a Grp4
and it is a full 4 with a good capacity chamber.  The cross grain
and Bird's Eye is good, so what, if you know, makes a pipe a
Root Briar and another an Amber Root?  Used.
5.85" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 45 grams. $245.
1981 Dunhill Root Briar #112335
Grp. 4 in size and in nearly-new condition (although there is a
little black line on the rim, over the shank, that comes from I
don't know where.  It's clearly not from a burn...maybe from a
Sharpie?  Also, below that, on the bowl, a little ding in the wood)
with good Bird's Eye and cross grain.  The draw is open, but
you do have to bend the tip of the cleaner to get it to easily go
through to the chamber bottom, even with the stem out.  Used.
4.8" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz, 42 grams. $245
Two Antique Petersons... #821242CO  (SOLD 11/18/18)
"Authentic reproductions of yesteryear" says Peterson, never a
company to miss an opportunity to reel in a customer with one
commemorative or another.  These Grp. 5s come in a fancy
cardboard box covered by the graphic sleeve you see in the
upper right hand corner.  They are as yet unsmoked, so you
have the opportunity to make your mark on them.  New.
Wish I could tell you the year this re-issue was made. $285.
2001 Dunhill Shell # 821272CO  (SOLD 11/5/18)
The condition of this pipe would be 'like new' if it weren't for the
most minimal of tooth chatter on the stem, which could be easily
buffed out...but then that would result in the slight reduction of
the button's crispness.  Let's just say the pipe is in exc. cond.
Everything else is in place, draw, no aromatics,
chamber into which I can fit my thumb, thick walls.  Grp. 5. Used.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 61 grams. $175.
Comoy's Blue Riband #227250MW (SOLD)
Grp. 3 in size, with an open draw and in exc. cond., with a hint of
tooth chatter on the bottom of the stem.  It has the 3 part "C."
The nomenclature isn't new & crisp, but it is all there, with no
rubouts, and easily legible.  Used
5.5" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz. 32 grams. $145.
Barling Guinea Grain #424-83
A touch of wear is visible at one part of the inner bowl rim,
and the logo on the stem is freshly stamped.  The "Barling"
is in script; family era Guinea Grains employ a "Barling's,"
with an apostrophe 's'.  The 4 digit shape number is 5294
so the conclusion is that this is post family production.   It
appears to be a Grp. 4 in size with a wide-open draw.  Used.
5.25" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight:1oz., 27 grams. $65.
Charatan Distinction #821309TT
As for condition, the pipe is unsmoked, and as for pedigree, it
has the Lane "L" on the shank, plus "Made by Hand in City of
London."  Grp. 6 size, with a chamber diameter large enough for
me to put my thumb into.  The draw is wide-open. New.
5.9" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 53 grams. $195.
Charatan Supreme 821136  (SOLD 11/5/18)
As much as it pains me to do so, let me be honest here: this is
not a "Supreme."  Sure, it's stamped "Charatan's Make
Supreme" and I could legally change my name to Paul Newman.
(Yet, since this is a used pipe, can we assume that somebody
once bought it at something close to what the shop was asking
for Charatan Supremes?  Can we also assume that if I do
change my name, I'd have a shot with Joanne Woodward?)  It
is a perfectly decent, servicable briar, with minor tooth chatter
on the stem & carbon residue on the rim in Grp 5 size.  The
draw is wide-open & for cheap you can have a Supreme.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 38 grams. $95.
Dunhill Shell Shape #10882CO
The shape # is 3205, so this must have sold as a Grp. 3 in size,
but it is clearly a full-fledged 4, so right away, you're a leg up if
you get this Dunhill.  In fact, I can almost fit my thumb into the
chamber.  The year of production, stamped after the "England"
is blurry, but I'm going to guess it's a 1998.  At any rate, it's
from the '90's and is unsmoked, with the tube still in the shank.
Even with the tube in, the draw is wide-open.  Thick walls &
nice, pronounced blast, too.  New.
5.65" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 37 grams. $315
Charatan Selected #821304TT  (SOLD 11/27/18)
The remnants of the "CP" are barely discernible on the stem,
having been buffed down.  The nomenclature on the shank is all
crisp & clear, including the "Extra Large" & "Made by Hand in
City of Londod."  There is no "L" so it must be a pipe that was
not distributed in the U.S.  It's a Grp. 7 size with a tooth indent  
on the top & bottom of the stem.  The draw is open.  Used.
6.25" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 2.5 oz., 71 grams. $95.
Ashton Old Church #82168 (SOLD 9/15/18)
A small, single X size that was never broken in, so it's pretty
near new.  The draw is open & the stem is vulcanite.  Stamped
"13," it's a 1993 model 7 should smoke beautifully.  Used.
5.3" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 7/8 oz., 26 grams. $145.
1963Dunhill Shell #82138
It's a Grp. 4 and the chamber rim is crisp, as is the nomencla-
ture.  There is some very minor tooth chatter on the stem.
4.5" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $325.
Ashton 3X Sovereign #821208ME
Since there's a '29' after the "Made in England" stamp, I think
this must have been made in 2009.  It mimics the great Dunhill
LB Billiards (many of which were undoubtedly made by the same
man who made this pipe).  The cond. is very good, with just a
touch of wear on the inner rim and negligible marks on the
bottom of the stem.  The all-important draw is wide open.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 55 grams. $245.
Pre-Transition Barling's Special EXEL #101470AG
The pipe shape # is 447 and the residue of the original stem is
visible.  Also, the cond. is exc., with a very clean stem and bowl
rim.  If there is any drawback to this pipe, I think that the thick-
ness of the wall is not in proper proportion the the diameter of
the chamber.  I would guess that the pipe might thus smoke
hot.  Yet, the pipe is used and there is no hot, or dark, spots on
bowl, so one can presume it does not smoke hot.  
5.5" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $175
BBB #89-024SR
The stamping on the band does not add up to a hallmark date,
so I don't know the exact year of this pipe, but the hole at the
end of the stem indicates a very old pipe, as does the sold
"BBB" stamped on the shank, without any other identifying info.
It is a Grp. 2 in size.  Other than the wear on the rim, the pipe is
in excellent cond.  You can see the diamond outline of the BBB
logo on the stem, but the letters have been buffed off. Used.
5" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 28 grams. $135.
Upshall P #623174
When cleaning this pipe, I noticed a dark spot at the bottom of
the bowl, right where it also felt a bit thin.  Worried about a
problem, I smoked the pipe.  It does get hot there, and would
profit greatly from a bit of cigar ash paste.  But it only got quite
hot, it did not burn out and until the tobacco hit that area it
smoked like a fine Upshall should.  I hardly need another pipe,
so I'm offering it at a very appealing pipe.  Grp. 4 size. Used.
6" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 34 grams. $45.
1986 Peterson Gold Spigot #117176AG
Grp. 5 in excellent condition with an open draw and no marks on
the stem at all.  Fine, deep blast and well hallmarked.  Interest-
ingly, there is no nomenclature stamped on the briar.  Used.
6.25" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 53 grams. $275.
1978 Dunhill Grp 6 Shell #623179 (SOLD 11/1/18)
Just a touch of carbon residue on the inner chamber rim keeps
this from being officially in excellent condition, but by my loose
standards, I think it's in that condition, anyway.  It's true, if you
are anal retentive, I am not your vendor of choice.  Without
going into the details, this pipe is just fine, with an open draw &
no aromatics to have to deal with.  Actually, with pipes at this
level, it's infrequent that I come across a pipe that was used for
aromatics, and so I don't even bother mentioning it.  Used.
6 5/8" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 59 grams. $195.
2000 Dunhill Cumberland #821267CO
This pipe has barely been smoked, however, I noticed cracks in
the chamber, most likely due to a hot first smoke and not
because of an incipient burnout.  To protect you, my revered
customer, I smoked this pipe and it does not smoke hot & is not
burning out.  (It tastes like crap, but that's another story.  It's to
be expected from recent Dunhills).  Also, it can take a 9mm
filter, so it may have been made for the German market.  The
rim and nomenclature are crisp and clean, the draw is
wide-open and the blast sharp.  It's a Grp. 6 and my thumb fits
easily into the tobacco chamber.  Used.
6" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 64 grams. $150.
1982 Dunhill Root Briar #227179
This is a Grp 4, with shape #41022.  With just a little turning the
pipe cleaner went through to the bottom of the chamber.  For
a basic Dunhill, there is a lot of good straight grain & no bad
grain.  The draw is open.  The condition is New.
5.5" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $445.
Charatan Selected #821140  (SOLD)
The nomenclature on the shank is buffed way down, but the "L"
is clearly visible, as are the other indicators of grade, such as
"Selected" & "F.H."  The "CP" on the stem is not visible.  Or
maybe a slight residue of it is...hard to tell if it's part of the logo
or just some lines on the stem.  There are indications of tooth
work on the stem, but barely noteworthy.  The inner rim shows
minor signs of wear, but the overall smokability of this Grp 6 size
briar is not compromised at all.  It should perform very well. Used
6 1/8" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 45 grams. $95.
Peterson's Flame Grain #112330TT
I've looked pretty carefully and I don't see any fills on this well
grained (especially for a Peterson) pipe.  It's a Grp. 5 size in exc.
cond., with what is an open draw for a P-lip Peterson.  There is  a
ding on the left side of the bowl (top left photo) near the rim.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 56 grams. $75.
Peterson 2001 Limited Edition 327306CO
Handsome, but be careful when holding it while smoking 'cause
that silver rim will get hot.  It's a Grp 5 in size with an open draw
& solid grain all around, with good Bird's Eye on the flat bottom
(the pipe does sit).  As you can see, it comes with a good
looking wood stand.  There is a little dent on the rim. Used.
5.45" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 73 grams. $165.
Larrysson #89222FT
Made in 2009, this pipe is in exc. cond.  It hints strongly at
Charatan influence, most noticeably in its design excesses.  
Despite thick walls, the tobacco chamber is very narrow, just
over 6/10" making it difficult to fill the bowl.  Well, difficult for me
because the pipe has been smoked, although not a lot. Used.
5.6" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 58 grams. $195.
Northern Briars Premier 5 #821154
The size of the pipe is what first grabs your attention.  It's a
Grp. 7 size, with very thick walls, & solid grain all around the
bowl. As there is a '12' stamped on the shank, I take that to
mean the pipe was made in 2012.  It is still unsmoked.  New.  
6" long, bowl 2.35" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 76 grams. $185.
1949 Dunhill Shell #623194 (SOLD 11/30/18)
Much of the pat. number is illegible, due perhaps, to sloppy
stamping and not wear or buffing, but enough of the essentials
are clear and it's almost certainly a 1949.  The character of the
blast is a good indicator, too.  The issue is a chamber that was
reamed right down to the briar...over-reamed is not too strong
a term.  I smoked this pipe, and what it needs is someone with
patience who will build up a cake on the chamber walls.  I do
not have patience.    The stem looks original.  Used.
5.5" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 35 grams. $125
2002 Dunhill Shell #821319TT  (SOLD 11/1/18)
That wide, engraved silver band suggests, to me, a
commemorative of some kind, but there is no indication of that
other than in my imagination.  The band has the "AD" stamp as
well as the dated hallmark.  It is a Grp. 5 in v. good cond., with
just very shallow, small tooth marks on the stem, one on top &
one on the bottom.  The draw is open, as it should be. Used.
5.9" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 52 grams. $175.
Pre-Transition Barling's Bird's Eye #82163
The Birds Eye designation in a Pre-Trans Barling is uncommon.
That's on the plus side for this pipe.  The band covers 3
fissures, the stem's logo does not appear to be original to my
untrained eye, so neither does the stem itself.  The nomencla-
ture is buffed down, but it's all there and legible.  The rim &
chamber are used, but have plenty of life left.  The draw is wide-
open & the size is a Grp. 5, or at least a large 4.  Used.
5.8" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $95.
Ashton LX Old Church #424-93CO
Handsome & large with a silver ferrule that has both a sterling
hallmark and an "A" on it for Ashton.  The nomenclature has
something unique to me...a "JC" for Jim Craig, I'm sure.  This
is a Bill Ashton era pipe, but Jim was the working apprentice at
the time, as I understand it.  My thumb fits easily into the
chamber.  The draw is open and the pipe is unsmoked.  New.
7" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 2 7/8 oz., 80 grams. $325
Charatan Free Hand Relief #8901
Grp. 7 in size with a great, deep blast.  The way the rim is cut, it
almost looks as though there's an insert in the chamber, but I do
not think that's the case, unless the carver decided he cut the
chamber too large and then put in a briar insert.  In any case,
the previous owner liked the pipe and smoked it a lot, yet
preserved it so that all is intact, with clear nomenclature, a  stem
without tooth marks and a "CP" that is still visible, plus the Lane
"L" logo on the shank bottom.  The draw is wide-open. Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 55 grams. $85.
Charatan Supreme #82122
A legitimate Supreme, in all respects, including size, the "L," an
open draw and the grain quality.  There is a hint of tooth chatter
on the stem.  The dark spot on the plateau rim is not char, but
just some carbon residue.  Used.
6 5/8" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 2 7/8 oz., 81 grams. $395.
