I would like to share my one and only Peterson, is the last acquisition to my small collection, I have been trying to identify it with out too much luck as far as I could find could be a pre republic due to the stamp and the logo in the stem, the full stamp script is Peterson's Meerschaum Lined MADEIN IRELAND 53 I already saw all the pics in this thread but could not see another like mine, if anyone can help with the date of production of any comment related will be great
Behold the NAP! This pipe is a re-creation of a pipe made by Peterson in the early 20th century which features a button unlike any you have seen on another pipe. It distributes the smoke in several directions simultaneously and I was pretty wowed by my first smoke. Its re-creation was initiated by Mark Irwin, the author of The Peterson Pipe Book, after his co-author Gary Malmberg discovered an old NAP and was dazzled by its smoking characteristics. Peterson donated the 312 pipes and Silver Gray tackled the difficult and laborious task of making the unique stem, with an assist from Brad Pohlmann. I was honored and fortunate to be among the 15 people selected by Mark to vet the NAP. Here’s a photo of my pipe and a link to Mark Irwin’s blog post about the pipes.
I've accrued two Petersons since you guys began ruining enriching my life.
This Tankard was a score from Dave Neeb's site. Most Tankards I saw had the P-Lip, so I was stoked to see this one with both Army mount and fishtail.
This 2015 St. Patrick's Day shape 408 was acquired from a forum seller. I saved it to smoke on St. Patrick's Day and never dug it out, so I've still not smoked it. Maybe next year...
I did notice that the green finish seems to be fading in the areas that a smoker would naturally hold the pipe, so that may be an "issue", though not one to bother me.
