Product Description

2003 Hallmarked Peterson Silvermount "Rosslare" Smooth Apple

Description, Markings, Measurements:

Peterson is an interesting brand. While many pipe collectors have any number of brands in their racks, there are a whole lot of smokers who are die-hard Peterson fans. By this, I don't mean they have a couple Petersons; I mean they smoke Petersons, and that's that. Not interested in changing, not interested in the latest and greatest, take your Dunhill and....well, you get the point.

This particular Peterson is a lovely smooth 408 Apple that is part of the "Rosslare" series, which are known by the faux amber mouthpiece, smart silver band, and if smooth, a rich caramel-toned finish reminiscent of a well-smoked Dunhill Root.  This example was smoked lightly and well cared for, with minimal issues.  The grain is a very nice mixed-grain flame with no fills that I can see (although there are some sandspots, including a pretty decent sized pit on the right side of the bowl that at first glance looks like a ding). Overall the pipe is in excellent, lightly smoked condition.  The silver band is impressed with the normal 'Peterson' stamping and hallmarks dating the pipe to 2003.    

Markings read: PETERSON'S (over) ROSSLARE, 408.  The silver is marked Peterson's Dublin and the hallmarks, which include a date code for 2003.  The stem has an inlaid silver-tone "P".

Condition:

9.5 out of 10.  Issues are minor, all:  Some very slight darkening (mainly one spot) on the inner rim edge (at the 4 o'clock position).  A small shallow straight line ding on the rim proper, as well as a small ding on the outer rim edge at the 2 o'clock position.  A few handling marks here and there on the bowl, but nothing serious.  All cleaned up and ready to go.
