Product Description

A Peterson Product:  Shamrock Smooth Prince

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.

The Shannon is a "seconds" line from Peterson, insomuch as they lack the Peterson name but rather are marked as "A Peterson Product", but they've always offered a good value for the money.  Usually sporting fills (this one no exception), they offer the smoker a product of decent quality for not a lot of money.  This goes doubly so on the estate market.  I don't think the Shannon is made anymore (I believe this line was phased out in the 1980s) but it certainly was not an expensive pipe at the time and would likely retail in the $120 range today.  This one has a few conditional issues, but they're all cosmetic.  So here, in this condition, it's a bit of a bargain pipe.  It'll be a great pipe to go fishing with, or do some yard work.  

Markings are light overall and need good lighting (and magnification helps), but they're all there: SHAMROCK, A PETERSON PRODUCT, MADE IN THE REP OF IRELAND, 407.   The stem has an impressed "S", faded from buffing but still visible.

 

Measurements:

 

Length: 6.15"
Bowl width: 1.49"
Bowl Height: 1.27"
Chamber dimensions: .75" across, 1.03" deep
Weight: 29 grams

Condition:

8 out of 10.  Nomenclature is weak but readable; it's been buffed too much, and while some areas are deep enough (most aren't), the stamping is smeared and generally easier to read with strong lighting.  Stem is original and has no toothmarks, but the "S" on the stem is weak from buffing.  The main issue is the vast number of dings on the rim, and the handling marks and light scratches on the bowl; none are deep, but there are quite a few of them.  There are a few fills that have shrunk over the years, giving the impression of dings (this is my assumption; they could just be dings) and this includes one on the back lower left side of the bowl, near the shank, on the bottom of the shank, and a small one on the back right wall of the pipe.  All cleaned up and ready to go.
