For whatever reason, I've very seldom seen a "birth year" Dunhill pipe that matches my own age. In fact, this is only the second '79 I've ever described. While the tenon has been replaced, this svelte Billiard overall appears to be in much better condition than I am. No scars, no dents or dings; if it weren't for the stamping, I'd have thought it not more than a few years old.
