Hi Bob,   thank you for your info.   I don't think I will be in too much of a hurry to sell my paperweight right now, however, will of course retain your well executed description when I do get round to selling mine  :).

Does anyone have any idea how many of these were made?   

Allan mentions that Colin Terris made the decision on the final design.   I am assuming what is meant by this and please correct me if I am wrong,  is the design within the weight itself.   If so, would it be correct to say they were only two distinguishable shapes, one of them being the facet cut or were there other shapes of weights with the Sherlock meerschaum pipe design?

I've corrected my listing to remove the reference to a John Deacons J cane, and instead reference the Whitefriars Monk date cane instead.  Thanks all for the correction!
