Reproduced Liberty Pinney Chess Set : 

This chess set is an exact reproduction of one of the most popular American Staunton Pattern chessmen, The Liberty chess set which was first manufactured by W.T Pinney in the year 1941. For nearly two decades this chess set was used in all major chess club tournaments held in the U.S. The most interesting thing in this chess set was that the manufacturer W.T Pineey was so confident of the ruggedness of the design that he offered a lifetime warranty for this chess set. These chess pieces have thick collars and there are no delicate frills to chip or break during rough usage. There is nothing fancy about this chess set but it has a masculine handsomeness and a traditional Staunton looks that serious chess players prefer in chess set for their regular usage.

Good value, though not a close reproduction Review by RickR

I love the original Liberty design; it's simple, sturdy and elegant. However, I have a few issues with this reproduction.

First, my set arrived with some quality control issues. The grain on many of the sheesham pieces felt rough with noticeable pitting - unpleasant to touch. Five (4 pawns and a bishop) were so bad I felt they required replacement. After some haggling, Chess Bazaar agreed to replace the defective pieces. Thank you.

Quality control aside (which no doubt varies set to set), the design of the knights is not true to the original. Where the originals appear slim and elegant from the front, these knights are fat and bulbous. I strongly prefer the thinner originals.

Other than the knights, the other pieces seem fine to my eye and hand. The set is extremely sturdy and quite heavy. I expect the set will hold up well to rigorous play.

All in all, it's a nice set offered a reasonable price - a good value if you don't mind the knights. Hopefully, Chess Bazaar will one day offer a 2.0 set with knights that more closely resemble the prototype. (Posted on 7/20/2017)
