Hey Neil, Stu here again! Found out from the man that replaced the stem on my Grandfathers pipe a while back ,that the pipe I had questioned you about was indeed (going by what he saw,and experience) over 100 years old!He said most likely it was made in the early part of the 1900 century! and that it had been well taken care of and smoked a lot! The stem I had replaced ,had wear ( from teeth) that had put a large hole in the bottom of the stem toward the mouth piece. Kinda neat to have something that was in the family that long ago ,and was taken care of all these years,even after he died! My first cousin gave it to me a few years ago when she herself was 94 years old! It was her Mothers Father that owned the pipe! Cool!!! Thanks again Stu.
Hey Niell! Stu here ,thanking you for taking the time yesterday to e-mail me at least four times in regard to a pipe that belonged to my Grandfather. Small pipe ,most likely not worth much ,but you still took the time to e-mail and help me to try and date the old timer!! Just goes to show some people are always kind to others ,when others never are!!! Hope the smoke is still curling!!!! Stu

Just found your site, looking forward to perusing it but right now gotta smoke a bowl.Sincerely,Stephen M. Barrett
Thank you for letting me in! Always nice to meet people who shares the same frenzy for pipes.
Neill, it was so very nice to meet you yesterday at Romeo's! I enjoyed the fellowship, the conversation and of course the puffing! I hope you'll come down our way again soon!
