English Estates: Dunhill Christmas Pipe (Nine Drummers Drumming (5103) (4/500) (2001) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-002-6545
While other editions of the "Twelve Days of Christmas" period featured sterling silver bands, for the 2001 "Nine Drummers drumming" Dunhill went all out, fitting the year's robust Group 5 straight Billiard with a full spigot mount arrangement, while moving the edition's title to the underside of the shank. The tamper of course depicts the namesake Nine Drummers, a-drumming away upn a pedestal formed by a giant drum.
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.
