    Bought 3 Peterson's today which I thought might be a good deal.

    If you haven't had the pleasure of a system pipe yet, it looks like you will now!

    Score!

    All three of them I believe are older. You can see a little pitting on the top ones band. And a little teeth damage to the P-Lip on the center one. The bottom one has just a slight dent in the bit. There's a model 31, A Barrel, and a 317 bent.

    I paid less then $50 for all of them. I'm thinking they were well worth it.

    Thanks guys, I'm glad to hear it. Although I had several Peterson's before I paid much less then that for them at a estate sale many years ago. I knew that there good pipes but wasn't sure what a decent price was nowadays for them. I reckon by yall's comments that I got a REAL good deal.

    I usually see a single pipe going for upwards of $50 if it is in good condition on eBay. So yes, you got a steal of a deal!

    I was told that the barrel has a Peterson replacement bit on it and the original was a military bit. I wonder if Floyd can make me one easy enough?

    I was told by the gentleman that I bought them from that the 31 was 35 years old and the Barrel was 20 and the 317 was the newest at 5 years old.
