  79. It is very difficult to tell from the web version I was working from. At about this same time a one year guarantee against defects was offered on the bowl of each pipe, and to insure against far older Dunhill pipes being replaced under this guarantee a simple dating code, showing the year of manufacture, was devised and stamped onto each pipe bowl. Examples for this period read: 1961-70: Same as above but with the line under the suffix number omitted. The one thing I might say, is it's possible the shank had been shortened, re-drilled, and the old stem used which would account for the discrepancy in the diameters.

  81. Not made after late 1920's or early 1930's. The smoke can escape through several holes in the lid as well as through the head portal of the cathedral. The cost would reflect these principals, which was against the current trend of inexpensive pipes of poor quality. Thanks George and Sablebrush.

  83. Comments - A hand-carved as opposed to machine-carved pipe of classic design. Alfred Dunhill began to manufacture briar smoking pipes in 1910; the famous white spot first appeared on top of the hand-cut vulcanite mouthpiece in 1915 in order that the customer should know which part faced upwards.

  85. Originally published in Pipe Smoker, Winter 1984, with a part of the guide re-published in the Spring 2005 issue of Pipes and Tobaccos. Republished here by permission of the author. Please note: Scanning the text from the original article has presented problems, some of which I have not been able to solve. Much of the spacing in this presentation is not as intended. Alfred Dunhill began to manufacture briar smoking pipes in 1910; the famous white spot first appeared on top of the hand-cut vulcanite mouthpiece in 1915 in order that the customer should know which part faced upwards. At about this same time a one year guarantee against defects was offered on the bowl of each pipe, and to insure against far older Dunhill pipes being replaced under this guarantee a simple dating code, showing the year of manufacture, was devised and stamped onto each pipe bowl. This code is still in use today. Pipe collectors, especially in America, pride themselves on having acquired Dunhill pipes in prime condition which were made in the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's. Some collectors strive to acquire only those Dunhill pipes made between 1920 when Dunhill stopped buying bowls turned in France in favor of those turned in London at the newly opened Dunhill bowl-turning facility and 1928 the year of Alfred Dunhill's retirement. Consequently, much confusion has arisen over the dating code because it has not been standardized over the years, and seemingly minor differences in the code can mean a difference of years, even decades, in the manufacture of the pipe. Adding to this is the fact that the firm has used a great many special stampings depending on what part of the world to which their pipes were destined, and that sometimes these stampings or codes were used for only three or four months duration. Leading to even greater confusion is that many pipes were simply stamped incorrectly; at times one part or another of the code is not to be found on a given pipe. Taking all this into account it should not be surprising that the original and complete dating code list, in possession of the firm's archivist at 30 Duke Street, is some twenty eight pages long. And even if this list was made available it would be of little use to any but the most expert because it can only be used in conjunction with the most precise knowledge of the Dunhill pipe as it has changed in appearance over the years. But enough of the complications in dating Dunhill pipes. Types of finish: 1. Shell - introduced in 1917. Tanshell -introduced in 1953. Redbark -introduced in 1973. Pipedia Sysop note: Other sources indicate the Redbark was introduced in 1972. Cumberland -introduced in 1980. Not made after 1930's. The bruyere finish was used on these pipes through 1929; root finish was used thereafter. Not made after late 1920's or early 1930's. These were not carved to order. Collector - Denotes hand-turned bowls as opposed to machine-turned made from plateau briar. Dating of Bruyere and Root finishes - 1925 onwards Pipedia Contributor's note: I am hoping to have actual photos of this nomenclature here. If you have any, and would be willing to contribute them, please E-mail me. Also, if you see any errors here, please E-mail. It is very difficult to tell from the web version I was working from. If you have the original and can scan it and send it to me, that would fantastic! Examples for this period read: 1961-70: Same as above but with the line under the suffix number omitted. In addition from 1965-70 the size of the suffix number is the same as the D in ENGLAND. Shape numbers during this period had either 3, 4, or 5 digits. Also the double digit suffix number sometimes underlined again became smaller than the D in ENGLAND.

  86. When I listen To the radio Its usually NPR or RC Sproul, Ravi Zacharius, Alister Begg I watch less TV than your typical American, literally less than an hour or two per week and that's during Louisvilles televised athletics seasons. Taking all this into account it should not be prime that the original and complete dating code list, in possession of the firm's archivist at 30 Duke Street, is some twenty eight pages long. Knowing a high quality product must begin with the best possible material, the briar used by Dunhill is from carefully selected burls from caballeros a hundred years old. In the links section. I differ to your OBVIOUS supreme knowledge!. Shape numbers during this period had either 3, 4, or 5 digits.
