    Its only 3 but I thought I would post 'em. All Savinelli by chance alone.

    The one I bought:

    It's a decent little smoker. Smallish size with a rather wide bowl for its depth.

    The one my best friend gave me:

    Smokes like a champ. Its really my favorite pipe of them all.

    The one I paid $13 for that turned out to be retail $800 if it was new:

    A Savinelli Autograph Grade 8. Giant bowl. I dont expect to ever make such a good find again. Thats a once in a lifetime find. Didn't know it was a Sav at first, just thought the grain was pretty. It wasn't till I got home that I noticed what I had bought. I dont think it smokes better than the one above it but honestly I smoke so little I probably wouldn't be able to tell.

    And a fixer-upper I got for 30 at another antique shop. Gonna clean it up and put it on eBay or here,I havn't decided yet. It's the only non-Sav. It's an Aldo Velani Ultima or something.

    Ha! Number 3 isn't for sale. Sorry folks. I just looked and the last one is an Aldo Velani Ultima. Stamped E 61 on the bottom. I don't know much about this pipe if anyone does, let me know. All I can find is that its made by C. Barontini (says so on that silly ferrule) and is sort of his "seconds" line.

    I have what looks to be the exact same pipe as your top pic, the Venezia, great pipe for a very reasonable price! I'm not sure if that shape comes in different sizes, but I would definitely not call mine small, it feels great in the hand, but I have to make sure it sits between smaller pipes on the rack or it will push them out of the way!

    Great start, and congrats on the Autograph!
