I have been waiting patiently for my Wiley Galleon #33 to arrive via Canada Post for exactly 21 days. I have tracked it daily cursing it's last known location (LA, California) and blaming everyone for it's disappearance. Someone in the City of Angels was surely to blame for this horrible tragedy. The Seller: Secondhandsmokes communicated with me on several occasions, professionally and respectfully each and every time. He informed me, if I understand correctly, that he had bought and sold pipes many times to my little town, and my pipe was one in a collection that belonged to a collector right here in Town (ok, it does sound a liitle far-fetched). His Widow had commissioned him to sell off the collection, mine being among that number. I received the pipe today. What a beautiful pipe it is. If the story is true, it has come full circle back to it's origin; so to speak. Either way...I'm happy and feel it was worth every cent.
