(Right side) Made in The Republic, of Ireland

Peterson started producing Mark Twains without numbers from 1983 through 89. This piece is one of these.

The band is 1981 [p] hallmarked. This seems to be a contradiction considering the 1983 release date. But an explaination may be found here.

Antique

 

 

 
(Left side) Peterson Dublin
(Right side) Made in Ireland
The Antique collection is supposed to commemorate Peterson's historical shapes. The markings on the four pipes replicas making up the collection simulate the Pre-Republic era stampings (forked tail P and "Made in Ireland"). The only authentic marks on these pipes are the hallmarks on the band with a year letter [K] in this case, standing for 1996.
"1903" on the band indicates the year this Dublin shape first appeared in Peterson's offer. (Name of the model: Dublin c. 1903)
