    It's a Stanwell No. 969-48. The E-bay description claims it's a 1960's to 1970's. Not sure about all that but I nabbed her $29.00

    Hope I didn't snipe any of you guys.

    I HAD THAT WON!

    Nah, just kidding. Did see that, but too much of a noob to jump on a great deal, plus I kinda like trying to clean up my estates, mainly the bits.

    Nice steal!

    Looks nice. My B&M has a number of Stanwells in a case. They all look fantastic. Now that I am once again employed, I may have to have a closer look at them...

    I was tempted but I 'd already "won" several today and figured I'd blown my budget. That is an excellent buy, though; I thought it would fetch more.

    I really like that, my last two Ebay purchases have been Stanwell estates because they smoke so well, and can be found for a lot cheaper than other estates these days. Post more pics once it's cleaned up!

    Older stanwells have the emblem inset in brass.
    As to when they stopped doing that, I couldn't
    tell you. Congrats on the win!

    It's awsome how it's still possible to get great deals on great pipes on the bay once in a while!

    Geez guys. Have you thought of joining the military? They could use snipers as talented as you two. ;)
