We've seen quite a few Dunhills of the "4112" combination, that is, Group 4, tapered-stem variations of the "12" shape, whether as "windshield" pipes or, as here, in the original Stack form. Curiously enough though, this is only the second to pop up in the County finish. This seems particularly odd given that quite a few of them have shown up in the rare, and rather pricey Root Briar finish, with most of the remainder being jet-black Shell Briars. Personally, I think the County's lighter, contrasted finish and cumberland stem do a lot to "warm over" the tall, lean, direct design, which can look pretty stark in the Shell Briar.
