That band is a repair band used to fix cracks or other defects in the shank. The maker is SJV (I think; hard to read that inscription), so that is not the actual maker of the pipe.
I know this isn't much help, but it's one thing off the deduction list.

I did try a bowl even though the tenon is loose and it's not finished but it still smokes like a dream.It's very clean,crisp and just tastes like it's broken in for that tobacco already

That's all that counts, my friend. I got my first Meer a few months ago, and even without aging, it's pleasure to smoke. In fact, I think I'll go stuff it full of goodness and light it up right now... 8)

I love my Meer. I got it for $10.99 on ebay. I had to fix the tenon and replace the mortise, but I love it and nothing smokes like a Meer!
