The 1999 edition brought us “Seven Swans a-swimming”, represented by the graceful bend of Dunhill’s “08” Bulldog shape in handy Group 3 size. This one sports the gorgeous Amber Root finish and a Cumberland stem, as well of course as a special “Seven Swans a-swimming” sterling silver band. As you would expect, the silver tamper depicts the Seven Swans themselves, circling and frolicking about the base of a cluster of cattails.
This example also happens to be number “4/500” produced, a special number to collectors where Dunhill’s limited editions are concerned, given that “1/x” remains in the hands of Dunhill. I don’t know where that leaves "2/x" or “3/x”, but I can say that I’ve never seen a single one yet.
