Possible . . . but my memory says I bought it new at Tinder Box. Again, something like 1985 or '86, this was; and I was never into used pipes, as everybody called them then.It does look like a Peterson p-lip stem. Possible that it’s a replacement and someone just fitted a Peterson stem to the pipe. Either way, looks like a nice one.

Handsome pipe. The mid-century styles are my favorites. I’ve started packing my pipes much more lightly and just having two bowls if I want a longer smoke. There seems to be more flavor in a loosely packed bowl. Still, I over pack from time to time as well.A poor pic, but today's pipe, a Prince of Wales model (no name on it), loaded earlier with Sir Walter Raleigh. My memory says I picked this one up at a tobacconist on Toulouse Street in the French Quarter in, I dunno, '87 or thereabouts:

I must have packed it a bit too tightly, or tamped it down a little hard, as after about 10 minutes it was drawing with some difficulty. I decided to abort the smoke rather than have the pipe, and my tongue, get too hot. Still, a pleasant smoke!
