    old pipes

    I have a box full of old pipes that I have acquired from my one of my ancestors. I was curious if anyone could tell me if any of them are worth keeping or selling. We own one of the oldest log cabins in Ohio and they were in a box down in the basement. we are selling the cabin fairly soon and have been trying to sort through a lot of the clutter.
    here are a couple pics of them. if there is a specific pipe that warrants a closeup let me know and it shall be. old pipes-pipe3.jpgold pipes-pipe2.jpgold pipes-pipe1.jpg

    In the first pic I like the bulldog in the top right corner. Would you take 50 bucks for the lot?

    I'll say they all look pretty clean. Hard to say what their worth without who made them. Could be drug store pipes and not worth a lot. Best to do research or like Scott offered,sell the lot here.

    If you list the markings on the pipes it would be easier to help you

    Re: old pipes

    I would suggest there are three ways to go about it if you don't smoke pipes and want to get ride of them... You can sell them here, after posting markings and such so the more experienced people here can give you a fair price on some of them. You can just sell them as a lot on ebay. Or you can try to sell them blind on here or ebay, or both, and hope people give you a fair price, and that people don't get screwed... I would say the first option is probably the best place to start... Just find any markings you can on any of the pipes and list them here and people will start figuring out what they are and make offers on what they're interested in.

    I for one, would love to hear more about that sitter below the one Scott is interested in.

    Re: old pipes

    Can you give close up photos of them. It basically depends on the condition of each pipe and the maker.

    Hmmm, dunhill? I believe those were cheap Chinese assembly line pipes. I'll give you $10 for the lot and you can be done with them. No need to thank me
