I sold a pipe to BradNTX. Just an old MM corncob out of the collection of 47 mostly cobs that I bought on ebay. This one was unsmoked and had a square shank and a silver colored band. It was a pretty nice pipe but not the Mona Lisa. Here's what the rascal sent along with the check. A very nice pocket knife and some M.B. Scottish Mixture Flake which I'd never smoked: Thanks, Brad! Yes, I classed the picture up with my meer instead of one of my every day cobs. Figured the knife deserved an "upgrade".
