    Got this today at an antique mall for only $8.00 mixed in with a bunch of grubby old basket pipes. I'm not too familiar with the brand but I believe they're a half decent pipe? This ones marked "St Tropez" below Butz Choquin and on the opposite side of the shank "St Claude France 1501" Looks to be pretty lightly smoked as well.

    Butt Chokin' pipes are a decent mid-range pipe....you stole it for that price. Oh, BTW...I'm told that the name is pronounced "Boots Show-can".......should clean up nicely.

    Quite a nice find. I never find anything in my area except for broken old Grabows and Medicos. ;>

    Thats usually how it is for me, this is the first non-grabow/"imported briar" that I've come across in these kinds of stores, just gotta keep an eye out theres still some good stuff out there.
