    I have a suspicion that only a portion of the pipe collection is at Hahndorf. There was recently an auction (July 16th 2017) of an amazing array of historic pipes and related items at Scammell’s in nearby Norwood, SA. I bought some of them myself. It was not stated where they came from, but the collection was vast and impressive. I’m hoping to get confirmation from the auctioneer or the museum. Go to Scammel’s website to see the auction catalogue.

      Hi Craig
      I hope there wasn’t any of the Buring collection at the auction as it’s held by the SA Migration Museum. I have been in contact with the museum so our family should have been notified first I would think. Thanks for letting me know I’ll be following this up.
