I don't see many of these around. There are always a few on eBay. But they are hard to get as bidding is competitive. and they are often in sad shape and without cases. I like a couple things in particular about these pipes. First, the craftsmanship of the silver work. Second, England has always been very particular about its silver craft and the hallmarks allow precise dating of the work and sometimes even identify the craftsman that did the work. I bought this pipe 5 or 6 years ago. I happened to come across it at the beginning of the auction. The buy it now price seemed reasonable considering the fine condition of the pipe and silver and I pressed computer keys as quickly as I could to buy it. It was dirty and just needed a good clean and polish. Hallmarks show it as the silver being fitted in Birmingham, England in 1913. Stamps ID the pipe as a VR Made in France. The silver work is so good that even the fine threads mating the stem to the shank are silver. There are a few minor dings in the rim, but that is it for defects. Even the stem was (and is) free of toothmarks.
