English Estates: Dunhill Root Briar DR E (1968) (Aftermarket 14K Gold Band) (Replacement Stem)
Product Number: 004-002-7640
A Dunhill DR-E's modern equivalent would be a Dunhill 5-star, which (new in 2013) retails for around $7,095.00. Suffice to say that, even with a replacement stem, aftermarket band (purely cosmetic - there are no cracks in the shank), and clear signs that this briar was well-enjoyed and not just kept around for display, this flame-grain covered straight Billiard will still be catching the eye of quite a few collectors. Put it this way: in over ten years worth of archives, we have precisely two "DR E" pipes, counting this one.
