Hello everyone, this is my first post here. I've been thinking about getting a pipe for over a year now, and have done a good amount of research on it (I even used pipe smoking as a topic for a research paper I had to do, the teacher thought it was strange). I just got back from a flea market an hour or so ago, and returned home with 3 pipes (well, 4 technically, but I got a Missouri Meerschaum corncob pipe for my brother since he wanted it, I wouldn't have gotten it otherwise). I had seen the pipes last time, and contemplated getting them over the week. I finally asked the seller today how much he wanted for them, and I ended up getting them for a dollar a piece. The guy had a bunch of them that I had looked over last week, and I was going to only get one today, but when he said a dollar each, I picked out the ones that I liked the best. One looked decent but had a cracked stem, another was something cheap looking with a glued on shank, 2 were corncobs, and another was a nice briar with a burnt bowl rim. Then there were the three in the best condition that I chose: a straight and bent bulldog (or Rhodesian?) and a straight apple or chimney, not sure on the style. The first two have stamps, and I can't seem to find one on the last one. The bits are somewhat chewed up and broken on the very end of the two bulldogs and one has a few chips missing around the carved line, but the other one is in good condition. All of them have screw on stems, and they all need a good cleaning. I'll post pictures in the next post.
