When it comes to folk collecting Dunhill pipes, there is a special place for those in the 1920s. Needless to say, there aren't a whole lot more of them around these days. Plus, given the toss between a smooth and a blast that is as craggy and interesting as this one, the blasted ones seem more desirable to most folks. What else was going on in 1929? Well.... the first Academy Awards takes place. U.S. Admiral Richard Byrd becomes the first person to fly over the South Pole, and Eliot Ness began investigating the notorious Al Capone.
