    I like the looks of that top Yello-Bole. I havnt had any luck on hunting pipes in the wild. The only one Ive ever seen is a MM Ozard, straight, with so stem and nearly entirely caked over. Hell, I could buy that pipe brand new for $3...

    Freaking incredible.
    I haunt the few antique stores and hit a huge number of estate sales. If I do happen to come across a pipe that is an occasion. If that pipe is actually worth the effort to refurbish it's an historic occasion!
    Ya dun good!

    I'm thinking I need to move to your neck of the woods. Used pipes have pretty well dried up around here. I believe everyone with a used pipe believes they've discovered Uncle Joe's Treasure Trove and are seeking the big bucks on E-Bay.
