  Blatter Bros., Montreal
This pipe was carved during the "factory period" (before 1964) but it was marked with a green dot which only appeared in 1964 and was continued untill 1967. After 1968 Blatter pipes were marked with the red dot. The stamping corresponds to a period ranging from mid 70ies to 1981.

In the context of the Sasieni/Dunhill trial and according to Stephan Smith:

"In an initial attempt to comply with US patent law, Sasieni moved the one blue dot to the side of the pipe.  This unfortunately didn't do the trick, and only a few side dot Sasieni's were ever made, which are now extremely rare and collectible."
