    We are very used to see Castello #55 shape with a taper mouthpiece. In this page we are happy to present a very unique version of this famous and popular shape with saddled colored lucite mouthpiece.

    Dating a Castello pipe is never an easy job!
    In fact you can exactly read a number stating the year of production, only on smooth pipes (from ‘Castello’ series and up) made after 1987, which is the year of the 40° Anniversary of the factory.

    You will never find a clear year stamping on those pipes made before 1987 and on the pipes belonging to Sea Rock, Old Antiquari, Trade Mark series. These pipes could only be approximately dated referring to the stampings, logo on the mouthpiece or the design of the shape.

    For the pipe presented in this page we can easily find the exact year of production. On the shank you will find a Castello logo stamped, with the number 65 inside. What does it mean?
    To find out the exact year of proaction we should add that number to 1947 (which is when the Castello factory was founded). So we can see: 1947 + 65 = 2012.

    This pipe was made in 2012.
