    I'm thinking about going for this one, (whether I should or not is beside the point), I was just wondering if anybody here was bidding on it before I go for it?

    Looks like a cool pipe, but if it is Meer lined, I'd want to see the condition of the inside of the bowl, to make sure the meer liner is intact.

    Yea it's odd, I can't tell if it's meer-lined from the pics but it def. says meerschaum on the shank. I got a guy at work going to bid on it for me. We'll see what happens!

    Not I, sir, but thank you for asking. But if you should run across a nice Dunhill with a Buy It Now price of $9.95, that one I'll call dibs on.

    I wish they'd include pictures of the bowl. That would answer the Meerschaum question, that thing doesn't appear to be made out of sea foam. And it would give you an indication of how it has been treated.

    He gets some sort of payment for everything he purchases from ebay so he bids for anybody he knows, good transaction for both parties! :th1:

    Must be a meer-lined. If you can't get pics of the bowl, I'd at least ask the seller to confirm that it's intact. Meer linings are prone to chipping and cracking.

    The seller says it's in good shape but he could not change the listing to show the bowl. Sounds a little sketchy but I think I might go for it anyway. It's going off about half an hour from now, we'll see how it goes.

    Man I liked that KW church warden! Just found this old thread of mine searching for something else... I never cleaned or posted pics of the Stanwell second I got! It's still home on my shelf, I got to do something about that...
