The seller says they were made in 1989. I didn't know anybody was still using catalin then.

I know several makers had switched by then to the ivory-coloured brittle stuff.
My Naills are from '91 (bought them new) and are full catalin just like the set on eBay. These might have been older stock, however. At any rate, I was happy, because (yes) that other fake ivory was chipping all over the place on everyone's pipes what had them
