    I promised to get pictures of these for another forum member. The only one that's missing from here right now is my 1938 Brigham Canadian Patent VIP pipe - it's being restored as we speak.

    So here they are in all their glory:

    I might just bring a few of them with me, and some tobacco if you're free this Saturday, when I'm up in your neck of the woods - LOL!

    Cheers, Carl

    Does the number of dots signify a price/quality level? let alone those nice shield/badges
    Almost hate to smoke a few of those, but I would have to

    The calabash is the 2010 Pipe of the year - they only made 100 and mine is #61.

    Took me a while to find one and I'm glad I did. The signifigance of it is that it's the year I got married!

    You might have a bit of a time to find one, as these P'sOTY tend to sell out fast up here - never mind what might even make it down to the USA. The Canadian market gobbles them up very fast.

    All the best, Carl

    The dots do signify the grade/finish and briar quality. Also, the POTY's are all the highest grade quality they produce - being made in France, as opposed to Italy now days.

    More than a few of mine are the original "Made in Canada" variety. My 7 dot apple is a Canadian pipe, as well as most of my other ones.

    Oh they'll all be smoked eventually. I don't just collect, I use em!

    All the best, Carl

    They actually don't have it in stock - I've been there and he said that he sold it and has never gotten around to removing it from the web-site!

    Neat shop though, nice selection of pipes and tobacco. Their house blend Strawberry tobacco is an awesome smoke - bought some to make up for not having the 2010 POTY in stock, LOL!
