2103: shape code


R : Root Briar

ENGLAND 12 : 2000+12

In 2012 the oval encircled "Dunhill" stamping has been replaced by:

Alfred

The White Spot

Dunhill's (arched)

Consequently a possible confusion between a pipe from 2012 and one from 1972 or 1932 (all being stamped ENGLAND 12) is ruled out.
