    Fine looking great with a great contrast stain there -- I hope it treats you well once you get it good and clean!

    Today I ended up winning a Pre-Republic Shamrock X105 and tomorrow I'm going for a Pre-Republic bulldog. I'll have some more restoration fun.[/quote]
    Was that one of the Pipes from Mike Leverette collection? I can't bid that high right now, need to replace the house a/c. I won a Shamrock pre- rep. 106 from the so. Cal. Collection.Now those will need some intense resto! Cake buildup and heavy oxidation!

    You are correct. I got that one for a steal. I only paid $20 for it. Today I'm trying for a couple more of them. I'm crossing my fingers on getting a bulldog.

    Sorry to hear about your a/c man. That is never a fun thing to spend money on.

    You are lucky I forgot to watch these items! I woulda gone more like $40 for the x105. I saw last weeks pipes going for $40 and up, so I never would have dreamed one would go so low. I was drooling over that Patent! A beauty went for just over $100!!
    Here is the pre- rep. I paid $45 for!

    Wow. You have your work cut out for you. Nice looking pipe though. Well I lost out on the bulldog and an Irish Free State but I ended up being able to get another Irish Free State.

    Here's the haul:

    The ones I really wanted I got out sniped. I really went more than I wanted to on the Free State but I do really like it. I can't believe I'm going to have a pipe that was used during so much history. I really like the wood color on it too. Now I'm trying to find any information I can on care for a pipe that old.
