Peterson Pre-Republic Unsmoked Canadian

Post by Goose55 » Tue May 29, 2018 9:58 am

I am quite excited about a large, 7 inch long un-smoked Peterson I found and won on eBay last weekend. But without much knowledge on pipes and even less on Peterson I really don't fully know what I have found, so I thought I'd throw this out there to see what others might be able to tell me about this pipe. How rare might this be?

Im pretty sure Peterson has done at least one re-issue with the pre republic stampings. I think it was in the 70s. Any chance this was one of those?

I don't know. I have read that this block style stamping "Made In" and under that "Ireland" was used between approximately 1947-1949, but if they did that again as you say in the 70s, that sure does muddy the waters, but it would help explain how this pipe went without being smoked. Here is that stamp on my pipe..

Well, I see this pipe has arrived at the P.O. and I'll see it up close. Arank posted that Peterson had re-issued pre republic stampings and I wonder if this "263" stamping on the shank might be a clue...

I love watching people go through PAD. You and DP have made me smile a lot. Is that bad? :lol:

That's a lovely looking pipe!

I don't know if this link might help with regards to dating it. https://thepetersoncollector.blogspot.c ... pipes.html

Lilley was a Peterson pipe expert. He speaks here about the stamping and the use of the wording "Standard" and "Premium", and the shape numbers.

It's a good read. Peterson as a company does not really understand their history and stamping prior to 1980!!

There is a book about Peterson that has been years in the making that I am anxiously waiting for (as an aside).

Enjoy your fine new pipe!!

If I ever have any spare money, my next pipe will likely be a canadian.

Nope.

Ah, PAD.

I think I’ve finally got it under control. Haven’t bought a pipe in months.
A “few” that I managed to pick up over the last two years or so filled some big, “I really want a . . .” holes in my collection.

Some more really nice Tinskys, one of Wayne’s beauties, a beautifully shaped and blasted Rad Davis Dublin, a higher grade Pete than any I had, a gifted Dunhill, a Becker&Musico, some more nice Italian artisans, finally a few Savinelli’s . . . added to what a few years before had been mostly Comoys, Orliks, Stanwells and inexpensive Petes. I know I’m leaving out several buying binges.

I think my FredS was my first artisan pipe.
It broke the dam. Mostly Italians at first, then Americans.

Remember when I got the cabinet to tidy things up?

Still have pipe racks scattered all over the place.

When they went over 100 I stopped counting. That was a long time ago.
I’m content. PAD over.

I think.

(If only Rusty were around to laugh at me. I’m probably one browse at Smokingpipes away from falling off the wagon.)

I have to stop looking at Smokingpipes. I’m not able to control myself and I only have 4 pipes. That Peterson Canadian is great one. Oh, and a “gifted” Dunhill? I wish I knew somebody that generous! :D

Is the "P" in Peterson forked in anyway? Or is it just "P"?
"For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose?" Philippians 1:21-22
