English Estates: Dunhill Shell Briar (LBS) (F/T) (4) (S) (1968) (1969)

Product Number: 004-002-7223

If you're wondering why this old straight Billiard sports two dates, the answer is that it was originally made in 1968, and then, at some point during 1969, repaired at the Dunhill factory. Presumably it was a stem replacement, so while the stem may not be the original, it would still be a Dunhill one, made by Dunhill, for this specific Dunhill pipe. Given the overall condition of this vintage sandblasted briar, and the presence no other Dunhill repair-date stamp, I'd guess the original owner was rather more careful with it the second time around.
