    1984 - The Paneled Apple

    This pipe is a gorgeous apple with six panels and a curved shank. Mark and Curt teamed up to design this pipe. This pipe is marked 0984/CR 8 and 122584. This indicates it was made in September 1984 by Curt and sold for $ 85 when new. The 122584 indicates it is a Christmas pipe, 1986 would be the first year the pipes would have Christmas stamped on them. These first three years would only have the date for December 25th.

    Production Estimate - 18 Pipes

    Prices $35 to $100

    Fantastic! Heard Tinsky himself was so impressed with this pic that he posted it on his Facebook page.

    A collection like that needs DESERVES to be smoked! :bing: I see far too many un-broken-in bowls in that picture, so I'll be happy to help with that process!:csmile:
