I also play the ukulele, and have an 1930 Banjo/Uke valued at about $150. A guy that dove into pipes then realized he didn't like it much fell in love with my Banjo/uke, and we just made a swap for his entire pipe lot for the banjo. He also thought he wanted to make pipes so he has a buttload of briar pipe blanks in various stages of completion. He got my banjo uke valued at $150 I got: 2 Peterson pipes (one bent, one straight, retail about $280 for both), 1 merscham pipe (not sure of the maker, but he said he paid $250 for it, he is reliable and no reason to believe he exadurated, I will find out more about that one when I get it), a gourd & merscham pipe that he isn't sure of it's manufacture, but from the pics, it sure looks nice. A couple other misc pipes he knew nothing about, I'll check those out when they get here. A 6 pipe rack, 2 or 3 nice lighters, some cleaning tools, A shoebox full to the brim with the briar block blanks, 3 Lbs of tobacco (1.5 Maple Steam, 1.5 1Q), a couple pipe ash trys, and some other misc stuff.. I think I got a deal. The Petersons I confirmed what they were, and I made out with just those alone not counting all the other stuff.. Can't wait to get it here to add to my collection..
