This isn't something you see everyday...if it was straight, I'd be bidding.

Nice one. I don't recall ever seeing one with a Danish style bit. Most of them have a plain amber colored bit.

I've seen them with bothcheapo and Danish, even amber Danish, but the cheapo is more common for sure.

Made in the 1950s, still unsmoked and in the original package. Sold for $33.00 in 2018.

That pipe has outperformed Beanie Babies as an investment vehicle. I think we all missed out on a sweet opportunity. At $33 dollars today, just imagine what it would be worth 60 years from now! You could sell it 2078 and buy a fancy dinner for one with the proceeds.

I like the used filtered Kaywoodie that's taken the cob's place https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kaywoodie-Filt ... 3217486036. Asking 23 bucks and change. I'll bet he gets 34 bucks and change---and it's used!

This guy's sitting on a bowl mine. There's a market out there. ;)

Nope... I figured since the listing had sold, we might want to get a picture on the forum.
