    I just bought a lot off eBay, and it came in the mail yesterday! Here are a couple of pics of the lot. Time to get to restoring and cleaning these big boys up!

    The Zippo lighter is there for reference.

    This one is Huge! It is in really good condition too, only stamped with U.S.A. I think this could be a 2-3hr smoke right there!

    Any comments or questions are welcome, I will try and post more pics as I clean them up. Most are in great shape to begin with.

    Fun! My wife is heading out of town this weekend, so I plan to spend Saturday restoring, smoking, and enjoying a fine beer.

    Nice. A pipe with a big bowl is on my wish list.

    I like the shape of the stem on the second one down, on the left hand side.

    Looks like it might be a white briar with a scorched and dirty rim. Been seeing those a lot on Ebay.

    Gunslinger,

    Nice assortment of shapes! The face is.... unique! How deep is the bowl on the big pipe you said may be a2 or 3 hour smoker?

    I just pulled out a big bent apple like that in the top left corner, got it out of a pipe lot I bought last month. It was a Barontini De Luxe with a busted stem. The tobacco chamber was narrower in diameter than I expected, but the depth made up for it.

    That one is a Medico, it is in good shape too! It is really light weight.

    I agree, it almost looks like the "military" style stem but it is all one piece, I removed the softy from the end. I have never used a softy, but i like the way it looks with it on better.

    Correct Gunslinger, It is not just scorched its really quite beat-up. I was thinking about selling it before i saw it in person, but it is pretty banged up around the rim.

    That is a Medico as well. Very light weight too, and my index finger barely fits down the bowl.

    Well the 2 on the top left have very large chambers, I can get my thumb inside both easily, i haven't taken measurements yet. The 3rd down on the left also has a large chamber, but is is more of a narrow deep bowl. I will post more picks as I measure and clean them up.

    Ok Here is a quick update. Got the Medico's cleaned up, they weren't so bad off. I also tried my best on the Kaywoodie White Briar, it doesn't look to shabby, but still cleaned up pretty well.

    Hey Ugly is ok too. So far my favorite pipe that smokes the best for me is not the prettiest looker.

    Nice job I would be tempted to strip down the white briar personally could be some fine looking grain under there.

    Yeah, I thought about that. I was thinking of doing a little custom work on it, but I am trying to keep my hobby alive so I think that one will be sold.
