    This is definitely a wartime Dunnie. Great acquisition there!! I know of many a collector who pine for these pipes and are willing to pay big bucks for them, especially with original horn stems intact. What tells you it is 1942 and not 1952 is the absence of a group number (introduced in '51), since this patent no. was used from the early 40's until '54. Send it away for professional restoration and it will be a gem in your collection.

    That is a great pipe, and at an unbelievable price! If that was restored professionally, it should bring close to $200 on eBay.

    Alright! I finally got my Frog Morton in and had my first chance at trying a beginner's English blend through this fantastic English pipe!

    It burns much more smoothly than my current basket pipe ever did, and I didn't have to relight it once. I'm not sure if that's the blend or the pipe but I'm happy to attribute it to either.
    Now I just need to sit down and smoke it a few more times to get a real feel for it.

    I'm definitely not selling this pipe.
