Today was a good day for my PAD. Bought 3 pipes from 2 antique stores while on a break at work. Two are sterling banded briar, the other is a meer. Is there a way to tell if the meer is block v. pressed? It was pretty cheap, so I'm not out a lot if it's just pressed, but don't know how to tell. It looks like it's colouring a bit and is very light for its size, if that helps. I'll get pictures up later.
