I wasn't really looking for a Dunhill birth year pipe, as my taste in Dunhill shapes and my 1961 birth year add up to an expensive pipe. This 1961 Group 4 Shell pipe showed up on eBay last week and I was fortunate to win an early Sunday auction.

The pipe only required a mild clean up. The seller had not disclosed that the pipe was a filter pipe, but someone had fitted an adaptor, which works fine. The seller offered to refund part of the purchase due to the listing error, so that was a win.

My birthday is on Monday, so that was good timing. The wife absconded with the pipe, but I'll enjoy it on Monday.

I wrote a Reborn Pipes blog on the pipe, viewable here

Fantastic looking Dunnie Al, and a fine way to celebrate your birthday! cheers cheers cheers

Absconded huh? My guess is your wife just "took" it while you were looking, and you just let her! Laughing

Well, when the box showed up, she said "that looks like what I'm giving you for your birthday". I just reply "yes maam"....

Yep, 54 today. I smoked it early this AM, along with the birds. Very nice, smooth, good draw and no weird tastes.

Some of that oil cured Algerian briar that the old Shells were made from can spoil ya !! To bad they stopped using it by the early '70s. There is a difference in the newer Shells for sure !! Nice B'Day present!! Enjoy !! Twisted Evil

That's beautiful Al, congratulations and a very Happy Birthday!

My holy grail is a 1955 Dunhill, my birth year.

Congratulations on your pipe and birthday. It looks like a great pipe. Im sure you will enjoy it for years to come. I got my birth year dunhill earlier this year. Not hard to find a 1982 though lol.
