The size of the pipe conforms to a Bantam but the lack of die stampings was unusual. Through email, Kathy Worth says it may be early Bantam prototype run from the early '60s. The only other pipe she's seen without the die stamping is from the early '40s located at smokingmetal.

this one!
Sorry to Marc for the hijack.

I'll get some pics uploaded by the end of the week.

Now back to the original question... Marc, I purchased this pipe through eBay. It wasn't listed as a Bantam. I counted the number of lines on the stem. It came in as 9 or 10. The regular Falcons have 15 or 16. So right away I knew this pipe wasn't a regular falcon. Looking at Falcons on eBay, day in and day out, you'll pick up on the standard length pretty quick. When a Bantam shows up you'll spot it.

Good Hunting.
