34 points description

I met Mick Ratliff at a North American Society of Pipe Collectors (NASPC) swap meeting I attended in Columbus. He sold me six the pipes at a very resonable price. A great haul! This pipe is a variation on the basic design. The top half of the bowl appears to be a separate piece from the bottom half even though it isn't. The expression "buff" comes from the process of buffing off the color from the top half of the bowl and painting it a different color.
