That's an early-70's pipe (thin mustache) and a beaut. Very keen on the dark marble stem and dark stain. I happen to be a big, big fan of the slight Italian flair on the billiard (that ever so slight tapering of the bowl). There's a fairly large shank length variation on the 118 (assuming that is a 118). They can almost look like Canadians at times.

Yup it's a 118 and unbelievably mint for a pipe from the 70s! and you're right the long shank does almost make it look like a Canadian. Thanks for the feedback, hearing this makes me even happier for the apparent bargain I just got Very Happy

In case you're new to vintage Caminettos, the little shield indicates it was made for, and sold at, a Tinder Box. Some also had a thick, glossy shellac finish. Not entirely sure why some did and some did not. I don't happen to like the aesthetic of those, though I have found them to smoke no differently, despite the theoretics that one would assume it would trap the wood and make it less porous and breathable.

I need to correct my statement a bit. It wasn't shellac. It was lacquer. Wrong terminology. Mike at Briar Blues says the type of finish I described is lacquer.*

*but he also sees no difference between ingesting one carcinogen vs two carcinogens. I agree with a lot of what he says, but I see no practical logic or sense in that kind of philosophy.
