    Hello all,

    I've got a friend who's Dad owned these pipes and I've dated them to the late 30's to mid 40's; however I'm not sure what they're valued at. I'm in the $130-$150 range, but I'm no expert by far.

    Could any of you help?

    Any help with specific info or price appraisals would be greatly appreciated.

    It's against the rules to appraise pipes here.

    But I don't think it's against the rules to speculate.
    I speculate that your estimate is a tad high or a "good day" Ebay price (*though you might just get it).
    Some pre-republic Peterson's go for half that. Some for a whole lot more.

    Best bet is to do an eBay sold listings search for the year and model number. Some sell cheap, others don't. If the right guy wants one a lot, you could get some decent money for them

    Ouch! I didn't know that. I guess I'd better brush up on the forum rules and policies. My apologies.
