I really don't think I'll keep it or the Spectator I bought today. I had some time to kill so I went into this antique and kind of got carried away seeing all of the old pipes.

Tanganyika is certainly a unique source for a pipe. When I had more faith in the stamping related to nation of origin, it was fun to add a new nation. I do believe the stamping on yours. Someone might pay you extra.

Boy, if I knew what I was doing...I saw some really nice carved Meerschaums, a huge Nording, a yellow bole and Dr. Grabows.

That pipe was made by the Tanganyika Meerschaum Corporation as one of their own labels. They also made pipes for GBD and others until the supply of African Meerschaum ran out. I have always thought African meerschaum smoked better than all the other varieties. That's a nice pipe at a great price. Clean it up and you should have a great smoker.
