Dear Potential Buyer,

You are bidding on a Vintage Pre-Republic Peterson "Junior" Estate Tobacco Pipe.  Peterson "pre-republic" pipes are highly sought after, their collectible nature stemming not only from age and quality, but the reformative area (before, during, and post-World War II) during which they were created. This particular pipe is made more rare by its edition. The Peterson "Junior," not often seen and no longer produced, is a vest-pocket sized pipe, far smaller than most Peterson shapes, that offers the same style and quality but in a compact, "coffee-break" sized instrument. Lightweight and well balanced, it is designed for both class and comfort, ideal for any style of smoking. For its age, the pipe is in marvelous condition, with few visible imperfections and an outstanding display of grain. The rim is without char and the interior bowl is in terrific condition with only a minimal layer of cake. This pipe is also a Peterson System pipe, a moisture reduction system that includes the P-Lip Stem, which angles smoke upward towards the palette to avoid tongue burn.

As mentioned, the pipe is in fantastic condition, nearly free of imperfection save some minor scratches and small indentations on the bottom of the bowl from seating. This pin-point sized marks are miniscule and hidden by placement alone. The coloring and finish is exquisite, and there are no detectable pits or fills that I could find. The vulcanite, P-Lip stem is in a similar state, polished to a high reflective gloss with only very slight signs of wear right against the P-Lip button. Again, these marks are very slight and hardly noticeable. The condition is noteworthy when considering its age.

As with all of my pipes, this one has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized for your smoking pleasure.

Thank you for viewing my auction. Good luck and happy bidding.

Notes to Potential Buyers:

·  Payment is expected within seven (7) days. For your convenience, I typically send an invoice upon auction completion. If more time is needed, you must contact me so we can make arrangements.

·  Positive feedback will be given immediately as soon as I'm aware of your payment. Your obligation as a buyer is to pay for your purchase and, as such, I will respond positively upon fulfillment of that obligation. I do not believe in holding out on giving feedback until I receive feedback. If you pay, you get positive feedback. Yet, please do remember to give return feedback when your item arrives. I strive for five-star feedback on all sold items. If you have any doubts, questions, or concerns about the product, please contact me before leaving feedback.

·  The pictures and description above are offered to give, to the best of my abilities and tools at my disposal (camera, lighting), a complete and accurate representation of the item. By bidding or purchasing, you are acknowledging the condition as stated.

·  Seller cannot guarantee the pipe's smoking ability, as the seller has not smoked the pipe. All pipes smoke differently, dependent upon make, model, tobacco used, and smoking style.

·  Important for International Buyers: Item will be shipped as soon as payment is received and confirmed. A timely arrival, however, is contingent on originating and destination countries’ customs departments and their schedule, regulations, policies and procedures. You are responsible for any duties or fees imposed by your customs organizations.

·  My goal is to provide the best quality products. I take exquisite care when cleaning and sanitizing these pipes. I want you to be proud of them; I want you to enjoy them.  If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I will do my absolute best to satisfy your inquiries. If you have any problems with the item, please contact me before leaving negative feedback so that we can correct the issue. I take pride and pleasure in what I do, and my main goal is your satisfaction.

Shipping and Handling

·  Please use the shipping calculator to approximate your total shipping costs.

·  I will ship your item as soon as I receive notice of confirmed payment (if payment is completed after post office business hours, I will ship the following morning). If a situation arises where shipping will be delayed, I will notify you via eBay with the reason. So, the faster payment is made, the faster I can ship and, thus, the faster you get your new pipe!

·  I offer additional expedited delivery options. Please view the shipping tab for complete details

·  If the item being shipped is particularly valuable or rare, I may add delivery insurance at my own expense. If you desire insurance in any other case, please contact me immediately after the auction ends for an invoice containing the total price including the cost of parcel insurance. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me.

·  A note to international buyers: It is your responsibility to handle all duties and taxes required by your country. I will not adjust the value on the customs form to sidestep taxes and duties. First, this is not legal and could lead to a loss of seller's privileges. Second, for those items that will be insured, lowering a value on a customs form precludes me from insuring the item at full purchase price. I apologize for any convenience, but I will not do this, so please do not request such an action.
