    i got these pipes at a garage sale hope i didnt grab nothings lol im new to pipe smoking and came across these at a garage sale going to pick up 2 more next weekend the guy found after i left. The BIG one in the case says kaywoodie, the 2 white ones with the black stems have stingers in them the little one has a white medalion with a black cross in the stem and the bent with the carving has a spot where it looks like the medalion is missing,the one with the yellow stem doesnt have a stinger, the other has a hand painted dragon on it. Any help to id these would be awesome and appreciated thanks guys

    i believe you have to copy the direct html link and that should solve your issues, If I am wrong then you should just play the guess and check game by using all of the links that they supply you with. thats what I did to eventually post a picture of one of my pipes

    Most of the time, the markings and any maker/model numbers will be on the left side as viewed from the bit end. Possibly even the bottom. Can we see pictures from other views?

    Well that looks like a pretty damn good score, I don't know about the white stemmed one but that Kaywoodie Oom Paul is nice! Plus 3 unsmoked meerschaums:th1:

    nothing better than scoring a boat load of pipes for the rotation and a nice amount of baccy to supplement those pipes. You could even throw in a good beer along with it

    Iain is most likely correct... if they are not unsmoked, then they might as well be.

    Still white inside the bowl, pretty quickly turns black when you fill 'em up and smoke 'em.
    Smoke 'em enough and the the outside will begin to colour up as well.
    Check out the Meerschaum section to see some pic's of well smoked meers and the way they colour.
