    I got back from an out of state trip this weekend and found that my Stanwell freehand had arrived. The pipe looks great. Once I have cleaned it up I will do before and after pics.
    Here she is:

    In the eBay product description I saw the number 144, but the pipe was obviously a 63(M) and Stanwell doesn't make a shape called 144 to my knowledge. Now that I have the pipe I can clearly see that it is stamped "Stanwell Antigua 144". This would be strange enough, but with a little searching I found this on smokingpipes.com:
    http://www.smokingpipes.com/pipes/new/stanwell/moreinfo.cfm?product_id=52020

    A different shape (211) in a different finish also stamped 144. The item description calls it a factory slip-up. Did Stanwell use this stamp for something special? Has anyone heard of something like this before? Does anyone else have a 144 Stanwell? Does this affect the value of the pipe? It would be nice to hear some feedback on this because I am thoroughly puzzled. :msty:

    Try your ebay link again perhaps? When I click it I'm brought to my personal "My Ebay "page.

    There should be an "edit" button somewhere in the post. Alternatively, just add a new post with corrected links.
