Friday of this week I was in a more affluent part of town than where I live and for some reason stopped at a garage sale a lady had, Seems her 89 yo grandfather had died and they were selling much of his possesions. Found a shoe box with 6 pipes in it and a pouch of Half/Half and some tampers and cleaners in it. Five of the pipes were loose in the box and one was in it's box and sock and had been smoked mabe two or three times! Four of the loose pipe were Punto Oros, two shell finish and two smooth. The other loose pipe was a smooth Hardcastle. All were well smoked with lot's of cake except the one in the box. This one was the jewel of the lot, a #121 bent pot Savinelli Guibleo d'Oro in the shell finish. It's a perfect ring grain all around the bowl and is one I've always wanted! To find one of the finest production pipes made today was an outstanding bit of fortune !! The 4 Punto's aren't bad either !!

Nope. She wanted $25.00 which I thought was OK considering the Guibleo d'Oro retails for over $500.00 ! Twisted Evil  Guitar my friend send me a digital camera and I'll take some pics for ya ! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

What an awesome find, would love to find some Sav's like that but the best we tend to find over here is Pete's and no name French briar.
