    A few weeks ago I sent this pipe to SP.com as an estate for credit in an effort to weed out pipes that I hadn't smoked in a while.
    It was rejected and when I asked why they pointed out that it had a rather significant tooth hole on the underside of the button that I hadn't noticed.
    I requested that they return it to me and upon examining it I noticed the hole.
    I stuck the pipe back in one of my racks and forgot about it.
    Well, today I looked at said pipe and decided that until I decided what I would do with it I might as well fire up a bowl in it.
    When I did the skies parted, the sun came out and I realized that I really did not want to part with this pipe after all no matter the condition.
    It now occupies a special place in my regular rotation of go to pipes.
    Here are the pics,

    Here is the hole(sorry about the poor picture.

    Reverse p-lip. It is a feature not a flaw!

    That was worth the shipping costs, if you rediscovered a pipe. I call that shopping at home,
    when I dig out a pipe (or anything else) that I'd forgotten to use. Sometimes we get lost in
    our plenty. I believe you could easily get the stem repaired or replaced for a modest cost, a
    way to celebrate this "prodigal son" pipe. Anytime you chew a hole in the stem, you know
    you must be enjoying the pipe because you use it a lot.
